Hello

I have installed (or tried to) slimserver on a Freenas installation. I have used the instructions here http://www.herger.net/slim/detail.php?nr=1026 and until nr 11, i get the slimserver menu, on the left and the install part in the window Services Slimserver does not give me any files to choose from, it just tells me to download one. But it is in the catalog, and with the correct name *.tar.gz as far as I can see from diagnostics execute command "/mnt/IVARTEST/Slimnas/Slimserver_v6.5.4.no-cpan-arch.tar.gz" it says there. still it does not find any thing.
The installattion folder says "/mnt/IVARTEST/Slimnas"

What should I try to do to solve this problem? My competence in commands used in Freenas are limited, or none existent, so I might need to get some further instructions on what an expert need to see to solve this problem.. The Freenas installation is 0.685RC1, the memory of the system is 256 mb, but in the system menu it says "memory usage 13% of 199mb"
I will be very greatfull if anyone can help me.

In advance thanks.

Ivar

Just make sure the extension really is correct- Windows explorer tends to change the extension. What does "/bin/ls -l /mnt/IVARTEST/Slimnas" say?

$ /bin/ls -l /mnt/IVARTEST/Slimnas
total 97584
-rwxrw-rw- 1 ftp wheel 15757045 Nov 3 19:37 Slimserver_v6.5.4.no-cpan-arch.tar.gz
drwxrwxrwx 2 root wheel 512 Nov 3 00:03 etc
-rwxrw-rw- 1 ftp wheel 837 Nov 2 23:51 slimnas-install.sh
-rwxrw-rw- 1 ftp wheel 17061088 Nov 2 23:51 slimnas.tar
-rwxrw-rw- 1 ftp wheel 17061088 Nov 2 23:51 slimnas.tgz
drwxrwxrwx 6 www wheel 512 Jan 23 2007 usr
drwxrwxrwx 3 root wheel 512 Nov 3 00:03 var


Which for me seems correct, since my knowledge is low.

I can't remember the exact logic of that script, but try renaming the file so it has uppercase S in SlimServer... just as a first guess. Otherwise it does look ok, indeed.

But it seems my not so friendly windows kills the capitalized S when renaming the file, it ends up with a small s. I have tried cp and mv in the command window of FreeNAS, but it wont change, any expert tips to do this....?

Rename it to anything else, eg. set an X instead of the S, then repeat the
other way around. Windows doesn't make a difference of upper/lower case
names thus doesn't rename if you only change case.

Thanks a lot :-)

It was the capatalized S that was the cause, deleting the file, changing computer, and downloading it again then carefully moving it and I got it right.

Your help was great.

Thanks
