I believe the default log gets written to /var/log/minidlna.log. Starting the systemd service does not create this file and thus does not allow for logging to a file. The package should supply a the 0-byte file /var/log/minidlna.log owned by nobody:nobody. Is there a better solution?

Additional info:
* package version(s) 1.1.1-1

The daemon now supports systemd via the -S switch which includes logging to journalctl and no need to define a PID file; if you use the attached service file this ticket becomes a non-issue.

EDIT: For reference, see the Fedora implementation of this service at:
