Hi,

I just moved my library from an EMAC to a Mac mini and am having way to much fun.... I have tried 6.0.2 and 6.0.1 and have had multiple problems from the CPU spinning at about 90%, to not all tunes/albums/artists showing up. I know that 6.0.1 - trunk worked on my emac, so i want to try it on the mini, but i cant seem to locate it....

Any pointers would be great

thanks
kkken

The trunk version is always a snapshot of a given moment. You'll have to
forget about 6.0.1 trunk as it's now at least 6.0.3. And the snapshots
aren't kept forever.

BTW: if you have problems with 6.0.3 and 6.1 I don't think 6.0.1 would
work, anyway. But if you give some information about your problems you
might be helped solving the real problem.

What i'm seeing is a collection of things that have been talked about on
the list already. I'll try each one and see what happens. What i do know

1)i download the current 6.0.2 that is available from the download page
the CPU spins at 90% for about a minute maybe longer, goes idle for 10
secs and then repeats....and the squeezebox goes blank

2)I download the 6.0.1 from the 6.0.1 folder and i'm missing about 300
albums, and lots and lots of tracks on the albums. They are all present
in itunes

i'll try the 6.0.3 and 6.1 and see what happens with it. Like i said i
have 6.0.1 trunk on the emac and it runs fine

is there something that i should turn on for debug ?

Hi, I thought i would burn some midnight oil, what else would one do on
PTO. I have been a very happy slim user, and have had a bunch of friends
move to slim when they see how easy it is to free your music. So i
thought that the Mini mac would make a GREAT media hub. It arrived on
Monday, and well here we are. What i have is a Mini Mac 1.42GHz with 1GB
RAM, 80G internal hard drive and 2 external Maxtor 1 touch drives
attached through Firewire. All the Music is on one of the Maxtor drives.
The Mini Mac is at os/x 10.4.1 with Itunes at 4.8.....I have about 1300
albums with approximately 13k tracks. I had this all running on a emac
at 700Mhz with 868M of RAM with a version of 6.0.2

I proceeded to downloaded 6.0.3 and it spun the CPU at 95% basically
continuously, the Squeezebox is blank and never wakes up. Web interface
times out.

I then downloaded 6.1. It spun the CPU for about 10 mins. Then told me
that i had 10 albums from 5 artists. Then i turned of itunes and typed
in the path to my music, after about 2 hours slimserver had found about
1200 albums. I presume that this is not normal.

I then downloaded 6.0.2. It immediately came up with 664 albums with
itunes enabled, but nothing in the playlists, and after about 4 minutes
the squeezebox went blank. The Slimserver (perl) was sitting at about
40% CPU which is not of any real concern. So i left it alone for about
15 minutes and when i went back i now have 1089 albums and the playlists
are full of songs. HAHA almost back to normal, and the CPU has settled
down to 3%...However i think there is still something wrong with my
setup, moving to faster processor with more memory makes things that
much slower ?

I'm willing to provide you with whatever debugs can i provide....Please
let me know. Now i can listen to Virgin radio again on the deck now that
somebody has turned the heat lamps on in CA ;-)
