I know this has been talked about before but I don't understand what I
need to do to fix it. I am running the newest version of Slimserver
(6.0b1 not nightly) on a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition Dell
PowerEdge 400SC (how's that for overkill?). I have 3 of the old SlimP3
boxes connected and running great. The only problem I'm having is:

When I use the RSS newsfeed screen saver, if I change the size of the
text to the larger size, it works for a minute or two and then
Slimserver crashes. If I bring it back up, again, it works for a few
minutes and then crashes. If I keep the text at the small size, no
problem. This was the same with previous versions of Slimserver that
supported RSS.

Here is the Event Viewer log: The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in
Source ( Application ) cannot be found. The local computer may not
have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to
display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the
/AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support
for details. The following information is part of the event: Perl
interpreter failed.

I'm a very basic user, no compiling or Pear playing, I just download
the software and play my music. What do I need to do so that my aging
eyes can see the newsfeed from across the room?
