Hi

Downloaded the new release; noticed if I view the default skin through IE, on not a full screen view the fonts are not rendered in the correct place. See attached.

the skins are using css much more than previous versions. if you do
squash it unreasonably small, some elements will shift.
it isn't really intended for less than 800x600 window size.

Thanks for the quick reply!

*Puts hand up*

What is CCS?


It's not a biggie for me, I use Firefox, where the pages also seem to have changed views (smaller font?) - but for other people in the world using a laptop with res of 1024 X 786 as a main PC, who like to pull around their windows, this might appear a little hokey...

Just a thought.

But to hijack my own own thread - I am also experiencing issues with playback; just like miguelk. The release is happy to scan my library, but will only play one track of an album before crashing. I will happily debug, but please explain how.

CSS = Cascading Style Sheets, which are an important organizing principle of web page design. If you're still curious, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cascading_Style_Sheets or http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/

cascading style sheets. Best answered by a search on google or
wikipedia.

assuming windows, check the event viewer, under control panel ->
administrator tools

if you installed any plugins for an earlier version, you'll need
updates or get rid of them in the meantime.

Thanks for the CSS info; I appreciate that.

More info on the server crash, which is happening after each single track - These are the logs from my event viewer -

Application Error -

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. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Can't locate object method "dbh" via package "Slim::Schema" at C:\Program Files\SlimServer\server/Plugins/TrackStat/Plugin.pm line 1601.
.

Followed by two MySQL errors -

This would be related to why I said "if you installed any plugins for

update Trackstat or delete it. Do the same for ALL of the plugins you
installed while running the earlier version of slimserver

the other messages are because of the plugin problem.

OK - Uninstalled the TrackStat directory and I seem to be back to normal.

Would it be a renegade suggestion for a fresh install of Slimserver to write over the previous installs completely, including the known outdated/incompatible plugins?

I guess the nightly testers would be miffed about that - but the 'casual user' might have a smoother upgrade ride. Dunno.

Just thoughts

Yes - our posts crossed I believe. Thanks for the assistance.

Use the Handheld skin if you want something space saving. Runs easily in
320x240 pixels - should be fine on your laptop, too. You'll loose the two
pane window, but it's otherwise very similar to the default skin.
