Hi,

Could somebody post a copy of their /etc/init.d/slimserver script file please, especially if you're on Ubuntu (Debian). I've installed 6.5 on Ubuntu via the tarball, not the .deb, and I think my home-cooked startup script is pretty lousy. I'd prefer to have the proper one :-)

Many thanks,



Jim

Just get it from here:

http://svn.slimdevices.com/branches/6.5/platforms/debian/slimserver.init?rev=9178&view=markup

You will also probably need the slimserver_safe script too:

I'm really happy with the .deb package.

Cool, thank you!

I got my fingers burned with the .deb package. When I first read about slim debian package a few months ago I was really pleased. So I installed it. And then I discovered it was 6.5 beta! It totally screwed my system up.

I was really miffed at the .deb being the 6.5b1 and not 6.3.0, which was the stable release at the time.

Since then I've compiled manually....

If you think about, that's probably the reason that the .deb was part of the
beta. It wasn't ready for prime-time, but it's come a long ways since
then. I can't promise you won't have *any* problems. I will be glad that
when 6.5.1 comes out I can just do apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.

Yeah true. But your posting says it all:

beta

At the time I hadn't realised that :-)

Agreed, your method will be easier. But now that I've hit the pitfalls with 6.5, 6.5.1 should only be a 5 minute job.

Cheers,



Jim

If you're running Debian testing or unstable, there's the Debian Slimserver package which is at 6.3.0.

"apt-get install slimserver" did it for me.

I expect 6.5.0 will be hitting unstable soon.

As for Ubuntu I see only 6.2.1 Slimserver for their next release (Edgy Eft). Strange. Somebody should complain.
