View Full Version : SlimServer Slow on LinkStation

Hi,

I'm running a recent (December) nightly on my LinkStation (upgraded to a
Perl 5.8.x). The web interface is running pretty slow, unfortunately,
although playing/streaming is working just fine. Is there anything I can do
to speed things up a little?

Also - the LinkStation is refusing to play Ogg Vorbis files. Can SlimServer
play these on a LinkStation?

Cheers,

bub.

If you run 'top' on the machine, is there anything other than SlimServer
eating CPU time? The LinkStation doesn't have a real zippy processor in it.

Could you run SlimServer with the --d_info option? We do include an oggdec binary for the LinkStation.
