View Full Version : Installing 6.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit

I'm fairly sure there must be a simple answer to this and my apologies
in advance if it's been covered already and I just can't see where to look.

I've built a new machine and installed Fedora 7 (test 4) onto it, with a
view to changing over to the final version when it's available. As it
has an Intel Duo processor naturally I've installed the 64 bit version.
Having built a number of other packages such as mplayer and lame from
source, and having had slimserver 6.5.1 running happily on 32 bit Linux,
I assumed that slimserver would be easy going too.

I have successfully sorted out all the dependencies except for mysqld.
/usr/local/slimserver/Bin/i386-linux/mysqld is obviously a 32 bit
version and isn't picked up at run-time. I tried installing the
mysql-server package. Running slimserver then gives:

070520 18:06:37 [ERROR] Error message file
'/usr/local/slimserver/MySQL/errmsg.sys' had only 463 error messages,
but it should contain at least 472 error messages.
Check that the above file is the right version for this program!
070520 18:06:37 [ERROR] Aborting

Anyone know how to sort out this confusion?

Answers will be much appreciated.

Andrew.

I use the MySQL that installs with Fedora.

i.e. create database slimDB

also create a user

i.e. grant all privileges on slimDB.* to 'slimUser@localhost' identified by 'password'

You have to create the DB yourself, but then you just put the url, userid and password in the /etc/slimserver.conf. When you start slimserver it will build the tables on the fly.

Many thanks! I thought it must be something like that and your
suggestion works perfectly.
