I upgraded from 6.1.1 to 6.2 on a Mac running iTunes 6.0.1. Perl (presumably Slimserver) has been taking near 100% cpu for going on 1.5 hours. My iTunes lib isn't *that* big, perhaps 45GB or so. Is this normal? Is it also normal that my Squeezebox would be dog slow during this time (I mean really really really slow!).

My other question is, can I use SqueezeNetwork with a first generation Squeezebox?

Thanks,
-Tom

Well, I answered both my questions. The install caused Perl to spin out of control. It ran for nearly 2 hours at 100% cpu for no apparent reason. Rebooting the machine put a stop to it and all seems normal

Also, I see that SqueezeNetwork doesn't work with the original SB. I put is in my menu and went there to find it says Needs SB2 (or something to that effect).

Thanks for all the help though! ;-)

When updating it will rescan all your collection. This can take a moment
or two :-). If you interrupt it (as you did with the reboot :-/) the scan
will be incomplete and you will miss some of you music when browsing the
collection. Just be patient and let it finish. Start a rescan (Server
settings) before going to sleep.

It ran completely out of control for 2 hours. Unless the rescan was slowed down intentionally in 6.2 (haha) I don't think it was rescanning.
