I have currently loaded the "Switch2OSM" package on to my server from "" It is a Ubuntu 12.04 server.

When I view the "slippymap.html" in the browser, Only the Mapnik source works, when I view the Local tiles, all I get are pink tiles with broken image icons. But I show no errors in the server system or no errors during installation.

I had loaded "Canada.osm.bz2" into the database with no issues at all. Could some one help give me some direction on what I need to look at to fix this.

Thank you for your time.

When you say "no errors in the server system" do you mean no errors in your web server's error.log? Because that would be the first point to check. If you get pink tiles but no entries in the error log, then the frontend isn't requesting files from localhost, or the server is misconfigured. If you do get entries in the error log, they will indicate what the problem is.

meta: (converted from comment to answer) this is an answer to this question, isn't it? :-) Any further details would be another (more detailed) question.
