View Full Version : Does SlimServer 5.3 play well with Mac?

What are system requirements for 5.3 on a Mac? I earlier reverted back to
pre 5 servers because of extensive problems running on a 450Mhz G4 with
1.25G RAM. Does this version play better on such a 'weak ancient' machine?

Will it choke for running my SliMP3's or have I been dropped in deference
for the new units? Earlier I had to give up on an old Win 2k box. My library
is large (>26k) but the server didn't used to be such a pig either.

I'm running 5.3.0 on an even older iMac, a 700 MHz G3 with 1G of RAM
on 10.3.x. It drives 2 wired devices (a squeezebox and a SLIMP3)
without trouble. My library is about 4600 songs.
