Dean,

I ran into trouble when a "group" login was encountered. I deleted that
one, created "slimserver" with /usr/local/slimserver as the home directory.

I'm a bit at a loss for what password to use...if any. I'm using webmin
with this server and I'm no Linux expert!

The previous installation used ! as a password and so I copied that.

It still won't load the page.

slimserver-2004_05_04-1.noarch.rpm is the rpm I tried to install. The
install 'works' but there's nothing to see!

Thanks,

Jim

Hi Jim,

What browser are you using? Does it load if you use the lite skin:
http://serverip:9000/EN/

(By the way the latest nightly builds are always available here:
