Hope some one can help.

Decided to take the plunge and try and install SuSe Linux, you may be
pleased to learn all went well. (Dual boot)

However.

When I decided to boot back into Windows, I can't get my Slimp3 to work.

Running XP Prof

I can ping the Slimp3, but it appears not to be able to find the server.

I notice that if I go into Services, the Slim Server does not appear to
be running.

If I try to Start it - It says.: The Silmserver started then stopped.

Learning Linux can wait, getting my Slimp running again can't :-)

Best wishes.

I'm not sure what the cause is, but I have found that my laptop network card wot
work if I reboot from linux into windows. I have to shut down, turn off the
power and boot into windows. It may be that networking is somehow messed up
enough that slimserver can't create the listener on port 9000.

you might also try looking at the event log to see if there are any specifics on
why the service stopped.

Many thanks kdf, I tried that but no Joy.

As windows started up it did say Slim.exe has encountered a problem and
needs to close down.

The event log is not much help. It does show an application error.

"Faulting application slim.exe Version 0.0.0.0 faulting module unknown
version 0.0.0.0 fault address ox00000000

Any other suggestions ?

Best wishes.

James,

Do you get any (more useful?) errors if you run slim.exe from the
command line?

If it says something about another copy of SlimServer is already
running, you might have to reset the ip stack (a la MS KB #299357).
This is done in by running:
netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

Thanks Kevin,

Tried your netsh command without any Joy.

Can you tell me what is the cli command to start the slim.exe

Using windows XP

For information I have got a ireIKE.exe application error when I shut down.

Best wishes.

James.

At a guess, trying to run the Red Hat RPM on a SuSE system. Those two
flavors of Linux have quite different approaches to starting up system
services. Perhaps one of our resident SuSE users can step up with a
working startup script?

Hi Roy,

Thank you for your reply. I also have redhat 8.00 should I install that ?
I am not sure if I will have to install a missing perl module that has
been noted in the news group.
I am really looking for some help.
This is not easy for a windows user. I feel like I have just passed my
driving test, just installing it and getting it work :-)

Best wishes.

James

if you have installed the RPM, it is designed for RedHat linux (or its
variants). SuSe requires a different startup method. look in the discuss
archives for recent posts regarding SuSe. There have been more than a couple
scripts posted recently.

Before you go installing RH8, I'll post a startup script here. My setup
is not really "plug-and-play", since I usually do stuff the way I like
them, and that means getting your fingers dirty. Reverting to RH8 is
probably not a great idea, since in Linux land too older versions of the
OS mean bigger issues with security, user friendliness etc. Not to start
a Linux distro war, but SuSE tends to be a bit more friendly to non-Linux
people.

I'll have to clean up the script to make it "RPM-compatible".

Back in a sec...

Niek.
