Hello,

I have installed slimserver (6.5.2) on an Ubuntu Edgy box as described in the support pages. Now when I start the slimserver, I see that a constantly growing log file /var/log/slimserver/server.log. Looking into the log I see that it has only one entry being entered at a rate of about 1 per second:

2007-03-21 15:03:48 Slimserver died. Restarting.

The server itself appears to be fine, but I am puzzled of why this log entry occurs.

Any idea why this happens?

THX

Andrew

most likely, you have an instance of slimserver already running, with a
second instance trying, failing and restarting due to slimserver_safe.

ps gaux | grep slim

sudo killall slimserver_safe
sudo killall slimserver.pl
sudo /etc/init.d/slimserver restart

that should do it.

Make sure you don't have more than the one reference to slimserver in
/etc/init.d/rc5.d.

Thanks a lot,

that seems to have done the trick. Probably I must be more careful when staring and stopping slimserver.
