Hello everybody,

today i got my slimp3 (ethernet version) and it kicks ass. I'm really
glad i bought it, especially the open source software makes it way more
comfortable then other players.
okay, know what i have to share:
i worked on a suse script for starting/stopping/restarting the slimserver:

------- snip -------

#! /bin/sh

# /etc/init.d/slimserver
#
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: slimserver
# Required-Start: $network
# Required-Stop:
# Default-Start: 3 5
# Default-Stop:
# Description: start the slimp3 slimserver as daemon
### END INIT INFO


SLIMD_BIN=/usr/local/slimserver/slimserver.pl
test -x $SLIMD_BIN || exit 5

test -f /etc/sysconfig/slimserver && . /etc/sysconfig/slimserver

# Shell functions sourced from /etc/rc.status:
# rc_check check and set local and overall rc status
# rc_status check and set local and overall rc status
# rc_status -v ditto but be verbose in local rc status
# rc_status -v -r ditto and clear the local rc status
# rc_failed set local and overall rc status to failed
# rc_failed <num> set local and overall rc status to <num><num>
# rc_reset clear local rc status (overall remains)
# rc_exit exit appropriate to overall rc status
.. /etc/rc.status

# First reset status of this service
rc_reset

# Return values acc. to LSB for all commands but status:
# 0 - success
# 1 - generic or unspecified error
# 2 - invalid or excess argument(s)
# 3 - unimplemented feature (e.g. "reload")
# 4 - insufficient privilege
# 5 - program is not installed
# 6 - program is not configured
# 7 - program is not running
#
# Note that starting an already running service, stopping
# or restarting a not-running service as well as the restart
# with force-reload (in case signalling is not supported) are
# considered a success.

case "$1" in
start)
echo -n "Starting service slimserver"
## Start daemon with startproc(8). If this fails
## the echo return value is set appropriate.

# NOTE: startproc return 0, even if service is
# already running to match LSB spec.
/sbin/startproc -u $SLIMSERVER_USER $SLIMD_BIN $SLIMSERVER_ARGS >
/dev/null 2>&1
# Remember status and be verbose
rc_status -v
;;
stop)
echo -n "Shutting down service slimserver"
## Stop daemon with killproc(8) and if this fails
## set echo the echo return value.

/sbin/killproc -TERM $SLIMD_BIN > /dev/null 2>&1

# Remember status and be verbose
rc_status -v
;;
try-restart)
## Stop the service and if this succeeds (i.e. the
## service was running before), start it again.
## Note: try-restart is not (yet) part of LSB (as of 0.7.5)
$0 status >/dev/null && $0 restart

# Remember status and be quiet
rc_status
;;
restart)
## Stop the service and regardless of whether it was
## running or not, start it again.
$0 stop
$0 start

# Remember status and be quiet
rc_status
;;
force-reload)
## Signal the daemon to reload its config. Most daemons
## do this on signal 1 (SIGHUP).
## If it does not support it, restart.

echo -n "Reload service slimserver"
## if it supports it:
#/sbin/killproc -HUP $SLIMD_BIN
#touch /var/run/FOO.pid
#rc_status -v

# Otherwise:
$0 stop && $0 start
rc_status
;;
reload)
## Like force-reload, but if daemon does not support
## signalling, do nothing (!)

echo -n "Reload service slimserver"
# If it supports signalling:
#/sbin/killproc -HUP $SLIMD_BIN
#touch /var/run/FOO.pid
#rc_status -v
# Otherwise if it does not support reload:
rc_failed 3
rc_status -v
;;
status)
echo -n "Checking for service slimserver: "
## Check status with checkproc(8), if process is running
## checkproc will return with exit status 0.

# Status has a slightly different for the status command:
# 0 - service running
# 1 - service dead, but /var/run/ pid file exists
# 2 - service dead, but /var/lock/ lock file exists
# 3 - service not running

# NOTE: checkproc returns LSB compliant status values.
/sbin/checkproc $SLIMD_BIN
rc_status -v
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0
{start|stop|status|try-restart|restart|force-reload|reload}"
exit 1
;;
esac
rc_exit

---------------- snip -------------------

you should save it as /etc/init.d/slimserver on your linux box.
@slim: maybe you can create a suse rpm with this script so it fits suse
boxes too.
let me know if there are any errors or something. it works fine for me
and my suse box so far.

This is great. Anybody know the ins and outs of creating SuSE RPMs?

I'm running slimserver 5 (OS X), and when I go to settings->song
title format-> I don't get any options. Sometimes it's blank, and
sometimes it just says "song title format" again and bumps if I try
to move to the right again.

Very weird....
