Hi All,

Not sure I have made the right decision but have just down loaded RedHat
9 and decided to give it a go. The one thing I can't live with out, is
access to my slimp3.

Can any one help me with the following. (In real easy steps - Please
note where I have come from - don't take anything for granted especially
with regard to my knowledge of Linux)

[james@localhost james]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost james]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/slimserver start
Starting SlimServer: Can't locate Time/HiRes.pm in @INC (@INC contains:

Many Thanks.


James.

You're missing HiRes.pm. I don't recall what the Red Hat package is
named, but search your installation media for that and you should be
okay. (mount /mnt/cdrom && find /mnt/cdrom/ -name *HiRes*)

Another good way to get packages if you can't find your CDs is to go to
http://rpmfind.net.

Or...

rpm -ivh http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/misc/
perl-Time-HiRes-1.38-3.i386.rpm

(beware the word-wrap... that's all one line)

Getting ready for Christmas - and need to confirm the following...

I know how to do remote streaming to a software player - but what I
want to do is take my SliMP3 across town to play music at a christmas
shin-dig.

I'm not going to drag my computer along so I need to make an internet
connection back to my home server. High speed connection is available
at the remote end.

I do this all the time with software players... but I don't believe
linking to HTTP:// SlimServerAddress:9000/stream.mp3 is possible from a
hardware slim.

I'm thinking all I should need to do is plug the SliMP3 into the
network at the remote site - and either assign it an IP address, or let
it get one from DHCP... then just point it to the IP address of my
server computer on the other side of town. Of course this would be the
computers externally accessible IP.

I've already got port 9000 open and directed to the Slim Server to
allow for software player connection.

Will this work?

Craig.

What's your _upstream_ bandwidth at home?

supposed to be > 256K... but I have no idea how one would measure this.

My music library is MP3's at 192K CBR, and I know I can successfully
maintain a stream to a software player at the office for an entire day
- and haven't done any down-sampling with lame. So I think the
bandwidth would be fine.

I think you need to open udp port 3483 and direct that to the Slim
Server.

Thanks Ted,

Your right... port 3483 needs to be enabled - as well as 1069.

Who'd have thunk it... but there's actually a FAQ on the Slim web site
with this info. The only entry under Networking.

Funny how sometimes the easiest place to look is so often the last you
actually go to.

Cheers,

Craig
