    Won't restart upgrading to 5.2.1 on Mac OS X

    I just tried upgrading to 5.2.1 because I have a new squeezebox, and
    now the server won't startup at all. Any recommendations? I'm running
    OS X 10.3.4... I can't even find a log to know where to start!

    Thanks,
    Ken

    If you've got your SlimServer set to start on boot, you can try
    disabling the startup item. If you hold down Shift during the boot
    process, it'll boot into "Safe Mode", which disables these startup
    items. Then, once you're up, disable the server in the preference pane.

    Note, though, that I can't think of any reason a simple process like
    the Slim Server would prevent startup: if it was getting 'stuck' there,
    it'd have "Waiting for Slim Server..." in the OS X info box but would
    be getting to that point: nothing is loaded before you get to this
    point in the boot sequence.

    Sorry - the Mac is starting up fine - it's slimserver that won't start
    anymore.

    AH, OK. Do you have a ~/Library/Logs directory? If not, try creating
    one...

    Of course, now that I created the log directory, it starts up OK
    manually. However, it doesn't startup on boot, as it says in the
    panel.

    I'm a little confused as to who thinks run as.... can someone explain
    what method is used to startup on boot?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    On boot, it starts using a startup item, placed in
    /Library/StartupItems. This item is generated dynamically by the
    preference pane when you execute it, and runs as the user who turned it
    on.

    Try the following: turn the start-at-boot off and back on again. You'll
    have to authenticate two times. That should update the startup script
    to the most recent one, and may make a difference. Give it a try.
