That's not necessary. The server creates that file if it is started
the first time.

The default config doesn't work for me, starting and stopping to get a template is not intuitive.

That will *not* work because the server wants to write to that file.

I don't understand; why would it write to that file if it already exists (see above)?

The user and group name can be set at built time.

That's a pretty poor workaround Matthias, you should still be able to override it with mediatomb_flags (which is not possible today unless you edit the rc.d script by hand).

FYI, the Ubuntu package for mediatomb-daemon has the following features:

 * Installs a default config file to /etc/mediatomb/config.xml
 * Installs a startup script to /etc/init.d/mediatomb
 * Startup script config in /etc/default/mediatomb, defaults to
   mediatomb/mediatomb for the user and group and can be changed.
 * Startup script passes -c /etc/mediatomb/config.xml to the mediatomb
