Fed up with all the recent problems, I decided to remove and reinstall from
scratch.
Having done so, and launched Slimserver for the 'first' time, it is off and
scanning before it launches the interface - which follows some 20 mins later
after it has scanned. BUT I wanted it to use the iTunes database! What a
waste of time. And now it will have to rescan. Can't the new install be
programmed ask this key question before it rushes off scanning?

On a fresh install, it won't know the music directory so can't do this. I
suspect you've reused your config file?
