Ahh, kdf, the proverbial permissions... I'll try tonight, when I'm back home. Thanks.
FYI, I had trouble installing 5.2.0. Previously was running a 5.1.6 nightly (from about 10 days ago). To be sure (!), I uninstalled (rpm -e) that version before installing 5.2. There was a subsequent reboot.
rpm -i on 5.2 generated a script error - to the effect that groupadd slimserver was not possible because the user already existed. a --force generated the same error, but at least the rest of the install seemed to go OK.
Regards, Jon H-D

this could be a permissions problem. that is usually behind any refusal to scan

Slimserver:Slimserver. This is the user:group that is created by default when
installing the RPM version of the server.

There was also something wrong with the RPM script, that might have made this
worse. ITs been fixed in more recent nightly builds and will be part of 5.2.1.
