I am trying to install the Mac OS X version of SlimServer on my iMac G5. The install runs without incident and I click on 'Start Server' in the PrefPane. After a few seconds, the button turns from 'Stop Server' to 'Start Server' again and the server never gets started.

Any ideas how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks
Al

Look for

Home -> Library -> Logs -> slimserver.log

and open that file. The last thing in there should be a log event
with some information about why the server wouldn't start up.

Feel free to post it here for help.

I had this issue after upgrading to 6.5 and then falling back to 6.3. I needed to ensure SlimServer was completely uninstalled, then re-install 6.3

Below commands ensure the complete uninstall -

sudo rm -rf /Library/Caches/SlimServer ~/Library/Caches/SlimServer
(enter your admin password when prompted)
sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/SlimServer.prefPane ~/Library/PreferencePanes/SlimServer.prefPane
(enter your admin password when prompted)
