> Hello Daniel,Thanks for the script. I tried it right away, without any luck though.
My slimserver.pl file resides in
/usr/local/slimserver/SlimServer_v5.4.0 so that is what I changed in
I can't find the "slimserver.conf" file in /etc. But I found a
".slimserver.pref" in /root. What does that one do?
Furthermore the slimserver.log doesn't exist as well in /tmp.
The /var/lock/subsys/slimserver and /etc/opt slim.disable are missing to.
The symbolic links in rc2.d and rc6.d are there after I created them.
I can still start the slimserver by typing:
perl slimserver.pl after I cd to /usr/local/slimserver/SlimServer_v5.4.0
So thanks for the help but I not there yet.
It is probebly something silly I am overseeing but I'm not much of
linux man yet. But I will get there somehow.
