View Full Version : SlimCenter won't launch OS X Server 10.4.11

I've been running SlimServer, now SqueezeCenter for years on my OS X Server. After doing the security update SqueezeCenter will not start up.

I upgraded from SqueezeCenter 7.2 to 7.2.1 and that didn't help.

I found a posting that showed how to delete all the SqueezeCenter files and then reinstalled, still no joy.

Any ideas how to figure out what is going on and get SqueezeCenter working again?

I'm not much of a Unix person, but not afraid of using the command line in terminal with some patient guidance.

What OSX version & hardware? What does
Library/Logs/SqueezeCenter/server.log say?

From the looks of the log, squeezecenter never started executing so no log entries are being written.

So what log would I look in to see why squeezecenter doesn't launch?

It has been over a week now since my 4 squeeze boxes went dead.

Here is what appears in my CONSOLE log after attempting to launch SqueezeCenter. Can anyone help figure out what is wrong on my machine?

Figured out what the problem is. For some reason the last security update for OS X TIger clobbered the Perl installation on the machine. LWP was missing.

I used CPAN to reinstall Perl and then CPAN to force install LWP and that immediately solved the problem.

So all the Squeezeboxen in the house are back up and running.

DIdn't even know the SqueezeBox used Perl until I had to wade through and solve this situation. Found an interesting post regarding Perl and Squeezeboxes: http://www.perl.com/lpt/a/801
