Hi.

I unfortunately upgraded to 6.5.1, and now slimserver completely stopped working. The 7.b versions have not helped either.

So I want to completely uninstall slimserver before putting 6.5.0 back on. I have already removed the slimserver package.

Can I safely remove all slimserver directories? Is there anything else I should do before reinstalling 6.5.0?

thanks,
john

'dpkg --purge slimserver' should remove everything in the slimserver deb.

Why 6.5.0? Not 6.5.1 or .2?

Firstly, 6.5.1 didn't work at all (couldn't connect via web interface or the player). Hence wanting to go back to 6.5.0.

Secondly, I didn't know about 6.5.2, as apt-get still only reports back with 6.5.1.

Thirdly, 'dpkg --purge slimserver' worked. I did have to remove the /etc/slimserver directory manually.

Fourthly, I am now happily scanning my music collection, using 6.5.0.

Fifthy, thank you.

Numerically,
john

If you are doing a clean install anyway, I would recommend giving 6.5.1 or
6.5.2 (testing repository) a shot because it does address a lot of minor
issues over 6.5.0. The problems you experienced were most likely due to
some sort of upgrade issue, which would be sidestepped by doing a clean
install.

Point taken. Just removed 6.5.0 and installed 6.5.1. I'll wait for .2 to go into stable.

Scanning away.
