I have a smooth running RH9 system. When I installed my 1 month old
Squeezebox and the 5.1.5 software, my system slowed down to a crawl. The
Squeezebox recognizes the Slimserver, but no music is ever heard. It reverts
back to the date/time screensaver after a few seconds. I had to un-install
the Slimserver package to restore my system's performance. I searched the
archives but couldn't find anything that was relevant. I am just a Linux
user not a Perl guru so I really don't understand the finer points discussed
in the archives. Could someone point me to some helpful information?

Simple question, but did you wait for the server to finish scanning all
your music? This is a pretty intensive task.

I believe that I remember seeing a thread on this, but browsed the archives
and couldn't find it. So, apologies if this has already been covered. I'm
running the SB on a windows 2000 server machine, and it usually gives me no
problems. But when i was running server v5.1.5, and went to play any
shoutcast streams, it just "lost contact" with the server, and I'd have to
reboot the server and/or power cycle the SB in order to regain contact. It
worked fine any other time, streaming mp3s, just with using the shoutcast
plugin did I have that problem. I updated to last nights, nightly build of
5.1.6, and get a different problem with the shoutcast plugin, instead of
losing contact, when I try to hit play on a station to play, it'll empty the
playlist, and just sit there, not streaming the station. Please help, or
point me to some links that would help. I know little about perl.
