Hi. I recently saw a posting about this topic. Slimserver 5.1.3 and 5.1.4
occasionally crashed on me when I was playing around with the sqeezebox and
"surfing" through different albums/songs. The software window would then be
blank, and the software unresponsive. Upon trying to restart after manually
closing the software, slimserver would lock up at the startup graphic.
After uninstalling 5.1.4, clearing registry entries with RegClear, and
deleting the program files/slimserver directory, I installed 5.1.5. Upon
startup, it locked up again, however I was able to access the debug window
and copy the information out. The problem seems to indicate "another
version of slimserver is already running...", and I have not been able to
load the software, or start using the suggested web URL. When I install the
software however, I don't install the automatic load (as a service)
feature... One side note is that I often close the slimserver software, and
when prompted I leave the server running. The sqeezebox is still able to
access my music as normal... I am running WIN XP Pro (SP1a), Sqeezebox
firmware version 10, and my network is configured with the linksys 4 port
DSL/Cable router. I updated to the latest router firmware, and I don't have
any port filtering enabled as far as I can tell, so I don't know if it's an
issue with ports 9000, 9090, or 3483... I can ping the sqeezebox without
any problems. Here's some debug output:

SlimServer has started!

2004-04-27 22:52:18.5053 Problem: There is already another copy of the
SlimServer running on this machine. (Unknown error)

If I delete the slimserver.pref file, a few additional lines appear in the
debug. The say that my MP3 directory needs repair, and suggest login on
using the URL http://office:9000 (office is my computer identity)...


Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks, Paulo

Paulo and I worked on this problem a bit offlist, and he discovered that
a program called WinSockXPFix was able to get his XP box back to letting
SlimServer start. You can find WinSockXPFix at
http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html among other places.

BTW, I posted this information on the official Slim Devices Wiki
(http://wiki.slimdevices.com/tiki-index.php?page=ServerIsAlreadyRunning). After the calls for a Wiki and Dean having put up a TikiWiki for us, it sure looks bare in there. Howzabout a few more folks doing some writeups?

Yep, it's bare because nobody knows about it. Our Wiki is up and
running, but it hadn't been announced yet, mostly because I hadn't
found the time to do some costmetic work on it before we started
promoting it.

So, rather than wait, I encourage everybody who wants to help out to
dig in and start adding stuff there!

Thanks,

Dean

I'm clearly too old and out of it.

What is the advantage of it the Wiki?
Or more specifically, what is the advantage
of this wiki?

What are the goals? etc.?

The mailing list is already archived.
Any credible contribution to documentation, help files, etc.
has been accepted. There is another site, www.mysqueezebox.com
with a purely web-based forum for folks that
like them better than email.

Plus there are assorted folks with SqueezeBox related pages, like kdf's or
my http://www.pfarrell.com/music/killthecd.html
and http://www.pfarrell.com/music/slimsoftware.html
and http://www.pfarrell.com/music/slimserver/tips.html

What am I missing?

Thanks
Pat

Well, a few people had asked for it. The Wiki advantage is that it's
editable by everyone. When one of us comes up with a solution to a
problem or a nifty hack, we can add it to the knowledge base directly.

A Wiki isn't a forum. It's a different kind of collaberative
enterprise. A living FAQ, if you will. It doesn't replace any of the
resources you mentioned, but goes along with them.

I'm *so* depressed... calling me a nobody! :)

I wouldn't have known about it either, but Sean mentioned that you were
setting one up and I guessed the URL.
