I am running Slim on OpenSuse 10.3. Or whatever it is called now.
7.4 is a disaster so far.
1) The signatures for the packages are not published to the usual key servers (e.g., pgp.mit.edu), so my package manager (smart) refused to install it.
2) I tried to download it manually in Linus with firefox 3.5 and Konqueror. Both failed to work. The radio buttons for the linux flavor did not work in Konqueror. Firefox go9t me to the signup page, but the download never started.
3) I downloaded the rpms successfully on my Mac.
4) I uninstalled squeezecenter, and installed squeexeboxserver.
5) When I start it, I get the following:
Your locale was detected as C, you may have problems with non-Latin filenames. Consider changing your LANG variable to the correct locale, i.e. en_US.utf8

6) BUT, the log gives me a fatal error:
[09-09-29 16:32:10.0870] main::init (320) Starting Squeezebox Server (v7.4.0, r28672, Mon Sep 28 17:49:55 PDT 2009) perl 5.008008

So how do I fix this?
I presume I still go to localhost:9000 to con figure this, but it does not answer.
