View Full Version : Problem with Playlist - filename vs ID tag

I love my SqueeseBox/Slimserver... however ever since upgrading to 5.1.1
I can't get playlist to sort by filename. It seems to always be
insisting on sorting by ID tag. So all my songs are sorted
alphabetically, it's starting to drive me insane. (I have tons of live
CD's)

I've gone into server settings->advanced->Behavior -> Sort By File Name
and toggled it back and forth and there are no changes to how songs are
displayed in an album.

I've tried uninstalling Slimserver and re-installing.. but that did not
work either.

I began to look at the source code... but perl made me turn away pretty
quickly.

Anyone have any advice?
Thanks,
Dirk

Recently I've found that SlimServer is becoming extremely slow and
unresponsive. I wonder if this isn't a leak - here's why.

When I run top on Linux when the server has become slow, I get this:

VIRT RES SHR CPU MEM
---- --- --- --- ---
113M 95M 54M 16% 20.5%

And once I reboot the server, and have snappy response again:

VIRT RES SHR CPU MEM
---- --- --- --- ---
103M 103M 2204 12% 20.5%

All values are comparable, *except* the SHR value is drastically higher
in the slow response state. Could this indicate anything?

The server is running Mandrake 9 on a dual P3 800, 512MB. It's lightly
loaded, no X, mostly just Samba & Slimserver.

I'm not sure what SHR really reflects in terms of performance, but the
overall physical memory usage is the same, so it doesn't sound like a
memory leak issue.

What else did top return in terms of other processes, swap, etc...
