Hi,

I have Slimserver (v5.4.0) installed on RedHat 7.3 and it has been
work flawlessly everyday for a couple of months, until yesterday, when
the Squeezebox could not find the Slimserver.

This is what I have checked so far;
The Slimserver service will start & stop without error (via the RH
Service GUI). I connected to the Slimserver web interface, from a
remote machine, and it loaded ok but I can't play any songs or add any
to the 'playlist'. Nothing has been written to the logfile since it
was last working. However if I rename the logfile and restart the
service a new one is created. The machine itself is a headless box and
is used solely as a Slimserver, which is why i am so surprised it just
stopped working! Hardisk space is ok also. Any ideas, other than
reinstalling Slimserver, pleeease?!

Tom.

Hmm, I just posted a similar question, but it turned out I messed up
my settings for ip addresses to block. You sure you didn't change
anything at all?

Nope, haven't changed a thing. Machine is only connected to Squeezebox
with a crossover cable & i haven't even logged into it in more than a
month or so! I'm stumped!

For what its worth - it started working again. Um, by itself. I didn't
change a thing. It wasn't a dodgy network connection as I was able to
fire up the web interface, from a remote machine, and I couldn't play
tunes via that ether. The problem had persisted through reboots also.

Now I'm really confused! :)
