I had everything working on SuSE 9.1. I upgraded to 9.3. The server starts and the web page works, but neither softsqueeze nor my slimbox will connect.

I configured the firewall for
# Port number: 3483 (TCP) - Name: SlimServer Control
# Port number: 3483 (UDP) - Name: SlimDiscovery
# Port Number: 9000 (TCP) - Name: SlimServer Web
and also added 9000 for UDP and 9090 for UDP and TCP. But nothing connects. Any ideas?

I am using the 6.2 beta (as before)

I am not sure whet happened, but it finally started properly

I installed alienBBC, and now it will not start. It says it is unable to open the database. But it did before.

Even the Web page is dead now.

If I use the SuSE startup script from the wicki, it does not work. If I go into the slimserver directory and do
./slimserver.pl &
it does.
What could be wrong?

If I do
./slimserver.pl --daemon
as slimserver, it does not work. If I am root it does work. But all the files in /usr/local/slimserver and below are owned by slimserver and in slimserver group.

Also, the server crashed when I tried to listen to the BBC:

If I start it as slimserver, I get
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 143

I changed all th4e codecs to mode 777, buty it changed nothing. DataModel.pm is owned by slimserver, and all these database files are mode 644.

The problem was in slimserver.conf
I needed
cachedir: /usr/local/slimserver

It was set to /root
