I've managed to sort the problem I had with "perl w ./slimserver.pl"
crashing out on FC3. I'd installed ActivePerl (for some reason I can't
recall), and removing it and reverting to the FC3 perl installation has
cured the problem.

I still have the slimserver daemon crash problem though. The error in the
log is:

DBI connect('dbname=/root/.slimserversql.db','',...) failed: unable to open
database file(1) at dbdimp.c line 94 at
/usr/local/slimserver//Slim/DataStores/DBI/DataModel.pm line 106

- so it must be whatever's resolving to the "//" that's causing the problem.

Can any of you FC experts point me in the right direction, please?

After I posted I wondered about this. I use dag and freshrpm for my yum
upgrades. Surely there's an easy way to find out if I have these updated
perl modules, but I won't have time to figure out how until the weekend.
If it matters, if it only takes a minute once one knows how, and if
someone can tell me how, I can run a quick check tonight.
