I've been using my SB1 (and now SB2) for over a year but never felt the need to download any plug-ins. However, the rave reviews of the 'Random' plug-in motivated me so I downloaded it along with the 'AlbumReview' and 'Biography' plug-ins. The .pm files are sitting in the plugins directory (alongside all the default plug-in .pm files) and I've rebooted SlimServer (hell, I've rebooted the PC) but they don't show up. All I seem to have is the original plug-ins. Embarrass me, what am I doing wrong?

Random plugin should work from the Plugins directory (as Plugins/Random.pm), but
the other two operate from their own directories (as
Plugins/AlbumReview/Plugin.pm and Plugins/Biography/Plugin.pm

Check on that for a start. Also, run from the command-line, adding --d_plugins
as an option so that you can see any messages from the server when it tries to
load each plugin. on windows, this is c:\program
files\slimserver\server\slim.exe, Linux, its
/usr/local/slimserver/slimserver.pl.

Please read the installation notes - you have to install some additional

Randome plugin should be fine, once you see this. Michael Herger posted info
regarding the other two.

Thanks Michael. I did just need to RTFM. I downloaded the PERL modules and everything seems to be working now.
