View Full Version : Web interface broken again in trunk

In the recent trunk revisions, the web interface appears to have broken again. When I try to use it, it works for a few screens then hangs, with the browser constantly trying to load the page. This is exactly the same behaviour as happened around two weeks ago. Is anyone else getting this, or is it just me? I'm using Firefox 1.04 on WinXP SP2.

I am got the the same problem on 6/7 and 6/8 nightlies. W2 platform,
IE6 browser. Restarting the service fixes it. also appears to be
issues with the rss feeds.

Me too. I saw that behavior in 6.1 nightlies from 6/5 and 6/6.

FF 1.0.3 and XP SP2

I don't seem to be seeing this issue at all... What skin are you using?

If you turn on d_http can you try reloading a few times and then look at http://localhost:9000/log.txt (well, if that loads)?

Did you try something different than MSIE?

I reported about this problem several times in different places, with
little reaction. See eg. the following:

http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=14578
http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1631

As the bug's subject is misleading I might open a new one.

I've just checked in subversion change 3367, which should fix this issue.

If you're tracking subversion, please sync your tree.

Otherwise, it will be in the 2005-06-10 daily build.

It does for me (Opera 8, FF, Konqueror), thanks!

Hi,

6.1, 6/11 nightly

I still have the problem: the web interface never stops loading, and some images never get drawn in. It never stops working completely though.

Edit: Should say this is with FF, and I'm running slimserver on linux. The interface seems to work fine in IE.

Can you clear out your browser cache, and also run the server with --d_http ?

Thanks.

Thanks for the awesome turn around.

When I run --d_http and use FF 1.0.3, I see the output below, and then it just sits there not doing anything...

When I finally stop the page from loading, I see lots of output like below (and the images end up as blanks)...

In IE, I get what appears to be the same output, but it doesn't hit that stall spot like it does in FF.

Thanks again.

Interesting.. haven't seen this one before.

In your Firefox, about:config, can you change network.http.keep-alive to false?

Changing network.http.keep-alive to false "fixes" it. I'm not sure how to tell/where to look to try and debug where the session is hanging. It does work fine in 6.0.x.

I tried different skins/multiple computers and had the same issue.

I have been having more general problems with the nightlies from the
last week, all fairly consistent. Platform: W2K Pro. Running as a
service. SB2, wired. Last nightly used was 6/11

- Slimserver basically just dies. Under Services and from the Task
Manager it appears to be running - but the web interface can not reach
it and if I try starting it from application mode, it hangs. The SB2
shows the last played song, but it just stuck there and the remote can
not wake it. Have to pull the plug and then it hangs on looking for
SlimServer (it never finds it).

- This happens even -- or mostly -- when I am not even using
Slimserver, for instance when I come back from being out for some
hours

- In fact it never happens when using it.

- the computer is only running slimsever, and there is nothing wrong
with it, so I am confident it is not that.

- If I restart the service, it does come back. but this is a constant
chore, so from my perspective the last week's nightlies don't work.

I am not adept at the debugging, but would be happy to do so with some
guidance.

( on a positive not, the web interface, when working, is so much
quicker than 6.0.x).

Charles can you look in Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer and see
if there are some events related to SlimServer crashing? There
should be usefule information there.

shaboyi

I don't see much in the Event Viewer and nothing that appears at the
times it breaks. I have seen this, which may be related:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application
Event Category: None
Event ID: 0
Date: 6/12/2005
Time: 8:59:19 PM
User: N/A
Computer: MUSICSRVR
Description:
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. The following information is part of the event: OpenService
failed: The specified service does not exist as an installed service
..
I also tried completly uninstalling SS and reinstalling the 6/12
nightly (since I had installed on top of 6.0.x). It seems a bit
better but bombed out last night at some unknown time. There was
nothing in the Event log during that period.

Any other suggestions? Thx.
