A rc.d script to run Bliss as a daemon under FreeBSD (as in a FreeNAS jail)


Bliss is ideal for running on home servers, but it is not evident (as of the 2015-05-22 release) how to install and run it properly on FreeBSD, as you would in a FreeNAS jail. This repository contains instructions and an init (rc.d) script to run Bliss properly on FreeBSD or in a FreeNAS jail.

What is Bliss?

Bliss is an album artwork finder and tagger for music files (MP3, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, etc.). Its unique features include:

  1. Running as a web service, rather than as a local application
  2. Automatically assessing your music collection for compliance with the rules that you configure

The init (rc.d) script

The init (rc.d) script in question is found in the bliss file within this repository. The bliss script must be made executable and should be stored in /usr/local/etc/rc.d. It assumes that you installed the Bliss application to /usr/local/bin/bliss. See the wiki for full installation instructions.


See the wiki for full installation instructions for Bliss on FreeBSD/FreeNAS jails.

Version info

The current version of the script is based on the Bash startup script for Release 20150423 of Bliss, and was tested in a FreeNAS 9.3 jail.
