This is a continuation of an OT thread fragment I started in another thread about default MySQL passwords.
I'm having problems getting the Logitech SqueezeCenter plug-in to start. I've uninstalled it and installed it a bunch of times. I've deleted the squeezebox database, assuming it'll recreate upon installation. Nothing will get the Squeeze Center to retain a status of ON.
I initially thought it might have something to do with the fact that I changed the root password in MySQL, but resetting the root password and recreating the slimserver user and database still hasn't helped.
I found the Squeezebox Wiki page that talks about using an existing MySQL database, which was very interesting, but still hasn't resolved my problem. For those curious, the page walks through creating the slimserver database and granting access to it by an account called slimserver. The credentials used by the Squeezebox Server plugin can be found in the file /APP/SQUEEZE/squeezeboxserver/prefs/server.prefs:
[root@javelin]# grep db server.prefs
which I used when creating the slimserver account in MySQL, but still I've come up with no solution.
Does anyone have any ideas on what else to try?
