      Just installed slimserver 6.2.
      The installation on Unslung 5.5 went fine as discribed in the wiki
      page, but when starting the server with a 9000plus music folder.
      The slug dies slowly trowing out one deamon after another to get more
      memory. Inittially i have the following config;

      I've installed al kinds of packages. Samba 3, UFSD, bash, snmpd and
      mt-daapd. I know this is to much, but can slimserver run on an slug
      with 32Mb with some of the packages like snmpd and mt-daapd disabled?

      I've installed Slimserver on a W2k3 server and it take a couple of
      hours to scan the musicfolder but it runs using 102Mb memory.

        Increase your swap size by 256 MB.

        Disable everything except ssh and launch slimserver.

        So your slug needs about 100MB more RAM and will take 10-20x as long to do
        the scan.

          Haha I've read the article on how to fatten the slug, but i think
          thats to risky. Maybe it takes longer, but i don't care. I will let it
          update every once in a while during the night.

              It helps, but the figures don't match with the info on the page.
              before:
              Swap: 56220 7288 48932
              After:
              Swap: 208872 7264 201608

              So the swapfile added is 156 Mb.

              the command to create the file was;

              dd if=/dev/zero of=/share/hdd/data/swapfile1 bs=1024 count=262144l

                    Juggler,

                    Having recently gone thru this exercise of unslinging my slug and installing SlimServer, I can tell you the responsiveness of SlimServer is entirely dependent on the size of your library.  My library is over 20K files and SlimServer is often slow to respond, but not too bad most of the time.  My Squeezebox has also worked flawlessly since installing SlimServer on the slug.  BTW, making a huge 256MB swapfile and de-underclocking the slug are essential when installing SlimServer on the slug - that made a huge difference for me.

                    --Tom
