I have it installed on FreeBSD 6.2. I can get into interface and see my songs but if I click on them nothing happens? I have tried thru XMMS and I get 404 errors. Not sure what is happening here.

Any ideas?

XMMS should be told to open http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3

Do that first. You should get a generic welcome-to-slimserver sort of thing scrolling across the title display.

(Change 'localhost' to the IP of your machine if you are using a different machine to playback, of course.)

Then go to the web interface and choose songs to play With only one player attached you won't have to choose which player. so don't worry about that.

Of course, for somewhat better control, look under Help on the web page for SoftSqueeze.. .it will be much better than XMMS, since it can handle slimproto and knows when a track has changed, so there is less "stale buffer" sorts of issues. (There is no way to tell XMMS "hey, I dont want this track any more, please dump your buffer" .. you just have to wait it out.)

And of course, for better control, use a hardware player, ie Squeezebox or Transporter.
Softsqueeze is a fun toy, but a SB has better sound and you can play music from your couch without going near the server.

now I jsut stopped but I was running slimserver as root. Is that ok or should I change that somehow?

You probably don't want to run it as root...

http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?FreeBSDInstallationGuide should work (though I use Debian, so no clue how accurate that page is).

Also I think I found the problem. I had password stuff enabled and that was the whole problem
