media_addon_server fails after upgrade

Description

I frequently see failures of media_addon_server when rebooting after upgrading Haiku. I've seen this on several machines. The error message is:

The application: /boot/system/servers/media_addon_server has encountered an error which prevents it from continuing. Haiku will terminate the application and clean up.

I update like this:

pkgman add http://packages.haiku-os.org/haiku/master/$(getarch)/current pkgman add http://packages.haiku-os.org/haikuports/master/repo/$(getarch)/current pkgman full-sync shutdown -r

Log file attached.

Try to blacklist /boot/system/add-ons/media/firewire_dv.media_addon.

comment:3 Changed 18 months ago by gholmer

I blacklisted firewire_dv three times by using the safe mode options in the boot menu, and all three times the system came up normally and played the "BeStartup" sound correctly.

How do I make this permanent? I see instructions here:

https://www.haiku-os.org/guides/daily-tasks/blacklist-packages/

but how do I find the package name to use? and how much of the path do I use in the EntryBlacklist section? e.g. would it be "add-ons/media/firewire_dv"?

package name is 'haiku' as this driver comes from the base haiku package. The path looks good too.
