View Full Version : PDA as a remote using bluetooth or wifi

2003-12-09, 16:43
I too have issues with the SlimServer crashing when I use the Handheld skin.
(Only with the latest Nightly build though..)
Let me crash it again, and capture the error.... Hold please...

Name "Ogg::Vorbis::Header::PurePerl::DATA" used only once: possible typo at
app line 1097.
Use of uninitialized value in subroutine entry at /PerlApp/Slim/Web/Pages.pm
e 495.
Can't use string ("") as a subroutine ref while "strict refs" in use at
/Slim/Web/Pages.pm line 495.
>>>>> END ERROR MESSAGE <<<<<<

This happens with Mondays' nightly build. When I go to the Status
It will also crash when loading a large play list....
An error message about not being able to coerce the play list..

What do you have to reboot? Your PDA, the server or the slimserver soft? I
did never encounter any stability problems using it. And I've been using
it from the beginning (well, only 3 months ago ;-)) not only on my Zaurus,
but as a sidepanel in Opera 7 as well.

In my browser there's a "back" button :-).

What's even "worse": it opens the status page in a new window. There's no
"back" button in this case. And it does not stay in my sidepanel.
