Barring any last minute critical bug discoveries, this version of the
installers will be posted to the official download page on Wednesday. We'd
appreciate help sanity checking the build, so please download, install and
use it. As always, please report any bugs you find and post to the list if
you see any obvious regressions or crashers.

So um I can't be the only person 6.0.2 doesn't work for?

Undefined subroutine &Slim::Buttons::Common::setFunction called at

Hmmm...the Favorites plugin is a 6.1 feature and seems to depend on 6.1
APIs. I presume you went from 6.1 to 6.0.2. For now, please manually
remove it from your Plugins directory.

Bug 1289 is on the original list of issues you hoped to fix for 6.02, but it hasn't been fixed yet. I would really appreciate it if you tried to get it in - Radish and I have posted multiple logs and have been actively working on gathering enough data for Vidur to diagnose and address it.

Bug 1289 renders my multiple squeezebox installation close to useless. Because of this bug, two non-synchronized squeezeboxes (a SBG and an SB2) interact with each other such that the SB2 only advances tracks when the SB1 advances - and this occurs when they are not synchronized and are playing unrelated content.

I suspect Vidur is close to a fix, and I would appreciate it if you tried to get it into 6.02.

Thanks.

Looks pretty good for me so far. One weird thing, on my SB2 I got into a
situation where the FLACs (I didn't test anything else) played in FF mode.
I even turned it off then on again and it would be playing FF. I think I
recovered by pressing and holding the "|<" button.

By the way, how is SB supposed to be able to play FF? Exactly, what
features are supported and how does one access them?

Thanks,
Phillip

You can play in FF mode (2x, 4x, 8x, etc.) by pressing and holding the
FWD button. Press PLAY to return to regular speed. The FF scanning modes
play 1 second of audio out of every x seconds (where x is the scan rate).

Thanks. In that case, it definitely broke (once) while playing FLACs. I
tried pressing PLAY... I tried lots of similar things (like pause/play
etc.). Even off/on.... It either took restarting (hold power) or just
pressing the rewind button.


Thanks,
Phillip

As an upgrade from 5.4.1, the 6.0.2 release candidate fails to launch
on an x86_64 FC2 Linux machine. Below is the output from
slimserver.log:

I expect that your RPM is not truly .noarch but has explicit
dependencies upon x86_32. I would be happy to help you debug this
problem further.

Andrew,

Please see http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=13390 for
information about compiling the required Perl modules for your architecture.

Thanks,

And while that thread does say that we can't possibly ship binaries
for all architectures, we do want ship the most popular ones, so if
you do build them, please submit them via an enhancement request on
http://bugs.slimdevices.com so we can grab them if there's demand.

Thanks,

dean

Dean,

I have built them. Everything works as expected. How do wish to have
me make them available?

Since the x86_64 is now shipping in volume for both Linux and Windows
XP, I expect that you will need to cross this bridge sometime in the
near future. This weekend, since Fedora Core 2 is now "end-of-life", I
will be upgrading my server to FC3. I will do a rebuild then also.

Best Regards,
Andrew

I have a SS 6.1.x nightly running on FC3 AMD64 (x86_64), and I'm happy
to report it works well. It was simply a matter of running
Bin/build-perl-modules.pl before starting the server. The result was a
CPAN/arch/5.8.5/x86_64-linux-thread-multi directory.

Should I tgz that tree and post it as enhancement?

I've got to renew my warning against distributing as official binaries
compiled by arbitrary people and uploaded to bugzilla. That's a
security hole just waiting to happen.
