Forgive the ignorant question, but is there any info
on how to use the CVS (didn't see this on the SD
website) and just where are the CVS releases posted?

Thanks,
JF

look at the very bottom. its not a release, but an archive of the source code.
you can checkout up-to-date copy of the archive any time you want with the
right tools (cvs comes with linux, or get wincvs for windows).

join the checkins mailing list for comments as developers check in new code.

There is a tiny bit of information at the bottom of this page:

http://www.slimdevices.com/dev_resources.html

A more thorough howto is needed but briefly here are the steps:

Windows: Download and install cygwin (big install), then open "Cygwin
bash prompt"
MacOS: Go to Applications->Utilities->Terminal
Linux: Open a terminal in the usual way

Then type the following commands:

export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous (AT) cvs (DOT) slimdevices.com:/cvsroot login
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous (AT) cvs (DOT) slimdevices.com:/cvsroot co slim


It'll print a list of files that it's downloading, and then you will
have a full copy of slimserver. You would start it by typing
slim/server/slimserver.pl

to update your Slim Server install at any time, just cd into into the
"slim" directory and type:

cvs update

This will download only the changes between what you have and the
current version, so it is VERY fast compared to downloading the full
release. It also reduces my bandwidth bill, leaving additional beer
funds.

ALSO FOR WINDOWS: there are some gui-based CVS programs for windows
which do not require you to install the cygwin tools. I have not used
them but they are definitely worth considering because cygwin is a huge
thing to install if all you need is CVS.

Thanks Sean,

I just tried with WinCVS (one of the 2 windows cvs gui frontends - the
other one is tortoiseCVS). Works like a champ...

One note of enhancement:

It is better to use the -z option to cvs. use it like this cvs -z3 up

This causes the files to be compressed for transport over tcp. This in
most remote access cases causes a 5-10 times speed increase... Both
WinCVS and TortoiseCVS have corresponding GUI options as well..

If I delete a song from my disk - the playlists still have
a reference to that song.
Is there a good way of autodelete songs from playlist that
cant be found on the Harddrive?

Bästa hälsningar/Best Regards
