View Full Version : Trouble Starting Slimserver

I just installed Mandriva Linux 10.2 (for about the 15th time -- I think I
finally have it working). It is a dual-boot with XP Pro.

On one of my previous installs, I got SlimServer working, but I just tried
installing Slimserver 6.0.2 (Linux RPM) from the main download page and
Squeezebox doesn't find Slimserver. When I shut down the computer, I get
"failed" next to something like "shutting down SlimServer."

I still have faith in Linux.

Ok, I've been screwing around with the permissions, reading the Linux manual, etc. and now I get the following when I try to start Slimserver:

[root@localhost ~]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/slimserver start
Starting SlimServer: [ OK ]

[root@localhost ~]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/slimserver status
slimserver.pl is stopped

[root@localhost ~]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/slimserver stop
Shutting down SlimServer: [FAILED]

When I try to access slimserver with http://localhost:9000/ I get: "could not connect to host localhost (port 9000)"

What does /tmp/slimserver.log say?

The following repeats a few times:

You lack some rather important modules. Please see

them.

I missed that one in my search. I will work on that.

Thanks.
