I guess I was a bit harsh, and premature with the "recall" in the subject. I take it back. I actually removed 5 and re-installed 5.4 just to keep things working and before I start heading down the path of trying to check permissions and paths, my question is why/how could that be a possibloe source of the problem if the same machine was running fine with 5.4? Actually, I am planning to rebuild that machine on RH4 before the end of April so I might just wait and try a clean install of 6 on the RH distro.

SlimServer 6 does not work on RedHat 7.x - as RedHat has a broken perl there.

It should work on SuSe, but I've not tried it personally - I know a few
people on the list are running it.

The error below indicates that SlimServer is having trouble finding / writing
to the cache directory. Please make sure your permissions / users are
correct. You might also check your pref file to make sure it's not set to an
invalid path there.
