I'm attempting to install SlimServer_v6.0.2.tar.gz on Mepis.
I extracted with tar xfvz to /usr/local/slimserver. Then cd /Bin and perl build-perl-modules.pl and I get the error below:

Downloading Compress-Zlib-1.33.tar.gz to: /home/slimserver/tmp
Something looks wrong - I couldn't read /home/slimserver/tmp/Compress-Zlib-1.33.tar.gz, which I just downloaded.
Uncompressing..
sh: Compress-Zlib-1.33.tar.gz: No such file or directory
Couldn't change to Compress-Zlib-1.33 : No such file or directory at build-perl-modules.pl line 186, <STDIN> line 3.

can anyone give any guidance?

Thanks

John

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Does this folder exist and is it writable for the user you're using to
compile the modules?

Thanks for the reply,

The folder exists and has write permissions set to all, but I still get the same error, aka:

I don't know where Compress-Zlib-1.33.tar.gz should be, but I can't find it on my system at all. Locate shows /Compress/Zlib/Zlib.so for several different architectures but no tar.gz

thanks for any input.

John.

John - run the script from the top level:

cd /usr/local/slimserver && perl Bin/build-perl-modules.pl

Also - when it prints out: "Downloads will use XXX to fetch tarballs." - what
is the XXX for you? It should be one of lwp, wget or curl.

Hi Dan,
I ran cd /usr/local/slimserver/SlimServer_v6.0.2 && perl Bin/build-perl-modules.pl from /home/slimserver and I still get the same error.

the extra directory (SlimServer_v6.0.2) is there because I originally extracted the slimserver tar.gz to /usr/local/slimserver, slimserver being a directory I made before extraction.

>Also - when it prints out: "Downloads will use XXX to fetch >tarballs." - what
>is the XXX for you? It should be one of lwp, wget or curl.

downloads will use lwp

here's the full output:

cd /usr/local/slimserver/SlimServer_v6.0.2 && perl Bin/build-perl-modules.pl
Welcome to the Slim Devices perl module installer.

These packages are needed for SlimServer 6 to function.
You will need a C compiler (gcc), make, and perl installed.

*** Ignore any warnings about AppConfig. ***

Please enter a perl binary to use (defaults to /usr/bin/perl)
This must be the same perl binary that you ran this program with -->
Please enter a directory to download files to --> /home/slimserver/tmp
Downloads will use lwp to fetch tarballs.
