I've been using the 6.5 beta for a while and, now that it's released, I want to start using 6.2.1.

How do I go about uninstalling 6.5 and is it necessary to roll back the firmware on the players (and how do you do it)?

Keep a copy of your slimserver.pref file, remove everything else. Install
the version you want - it will automatically prompt you to press and hold
brightness for the firmware downgrade.

Hi,

I'm having trouble finding a specific list of how to totally remove SlimServer from Mac OSX. I was using 6.5, but it was not working, and I tried removing it and then installing 6.2.1, but now it only starts up for 5 seconds, then closes. So I'd like to just start from scratch.

Can you tell me how to find and remove all files?

Thank you!

FYI, the log looks like this for me:

get rid of slimserversql.db (sorry, I don't have instant recall on where
that is in osx)
This is the music library database, and it is not compatible with older
structures
-k

it is in
~/Library/Caches/SlimServer

When upgrading SlimServer on OSX, consider making a duplicate of both
~/Library/Caches/SlimServer
and
~/Library/SlimDevices

so it is easy to roll back to an old, working version.
