Talk:FreeBSD installation guide

For me at least the pack dependancies are wrong (FreeBSD 9.0 386) and specify just mysql rather than mysql 5.1. So the server fails to launch as described below. I added a work around but honestly this needs to be revisited because there are a lot of depreciated calls made in the compiling code... surely it will break again.

There is a significant, apparent, "Chicken and Egg" problem with the "Run and Configure" steps. After years of running (happily!) Slimserver from Slimdevices on FreeeBSD 6.2, I decided to install a brand new FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE on a virgin (1 Terabyte) HDD (Because I want miniDLNA working as well, and FreeBSD 6.2 will not make minidlna).

So, after fooling around with libtool 2.2 versus 2.4 and, finally, getting the 'new' Logitech squeezeboxserver 7.5.3 "installed" I can not run it, and so I can not use the [hostip]:9000 to configure it, so I can not run it.

Please add info to the installation guide to explain how to configure it, at least for FIRST RUN attempt. It can neither be configured nor run out-of-the-box as per the guide.
