I found a solution, how the slimserver 6.5.0 and 6.5.1 rescans the Musik directory again, try this:

cd /usr/local/slimserver./Bin/build-perl-modules.pl Digest::SHA1

I found it here: http://www.mail-archive.com/unix@lis.../msg04312.html

jiiipieee it works again on my Suse Linux 10.1 AMD Athlon 64 Box

have a nice day suseslim



after a couple of months i found out why the slimserver 6.5.1 and 6.5.2 on my Opensuse 10.2 will not scan or rescan the music. The problem is, that the logfile has the owner and the group "root". so i changed the /tmp/slimserver.log to the user "slimserver" and the group "slimserver". Now it works perfect! (click with the right mouse Botton on the logfile, then "properties" -> "permissions" and then under "user" and "group" write "slimserver".

that was the error meassage: 2007-03-03 21:15:22.6722 Setup::rescan - initiating scan of type: rescan Can't write to >>/tmp/slimserver.log: Permission denied at /usr/local/slimserver/Slim/Utils/Misc.pm line 1117. 2007-03-03 21:15:23.8563 Got to the END.

This must be an bug in the slimserver! Most software modules writes to the log file as root. But only Misc.pm wants to wirte als user "slimserver" and group "slimserver".

have a nice day :-)! Best regards suseslim
