I'm not sure how the Mac stuff getss installed. Are you on OS X?
It sounds like it, but I wanted to be sure.

Did you install it "from source" or is there some pre-compiled
binary? Do you run slimserver from double-clicking or is there
some sort of cli you need to do?

I agree. Then again, I'll be getting a mac mini next week and
should check out how it works. I'm pretty stoked. The last
mac I had was a "Fat Mac."

Yes. Had said 10.3.8 in an earlier post.

Double-click on the installer, and it then updates. I forget if I had
the option on updating (I certainly did for my original installation)
of installing for all users or for one user only. Anyway, it is
installed just for one user.

Usual procedure is just to click on Start Server in a preference pane
- in fact not even that, as it is set to start automatically when I
start my computer. Can also be done via a cli, and I will try if this
makes a difference. But the obvious cause (a permissions issue) seems
ruled out by the fact that the plugin lets me save from the
Squeezebox itself.
