    I had the same problem after the an installation of the Perl Source Code
    version 5.4.
    Now I' m running Linux RPM version of slimserver 5.4 with no problems.

    I had a few problems with the source code ZIP as well, though I can't
    remember what they were to document them. The RPM works just fine for
    me though.

    Server is a 900MHz Athlon with 1GB RAM running RedHat 9, perl v5.8.5.
    It's also the NFS server for my home LAN.

    Top shows me that slimserver.pl uses about 3 to 7% CPU when listening
    to a radioio stream (Eclectic - the best radio station I've ever heard
    that I didn't work at myself!

    I'm really happy with the slimserver 5.4/Squeezebox 1.13 combination.
    I haven't been running SS1.13 long, but syncing between my wired studio
    PC and the wireless SB is right on!
