    Stability of v6.02

    Hello,

    On my system (a Linux Gentoo box) Slimserver is not very stable at the
    moment. I will play fine, but often when I leave it alone for a while it
    just goes away, crashes, stops, whatever.
    This is quite annoying, the 5.x releases happily ran for weeks on end,
    but now I have to keep starting the slimserver process again (which
    involves booting up the desktop, as my server's headless, so quite a
    nuisance).

    What's up here?

    Krist

    What does the logfile say (/tmp/slimserver.log by default)? Are you using
    MySQL as database?

    I am using MySQL. The logfile is a bit unclear, as it does not have
    timestamps I do not know if error messages are relevant...

    The last lines are like:

    Assuming raw pcm input file
    Error writing mp3 output
    Assuming raw pcm input file
    Error writing mp3 output
    Assuming raw pcm input file
    Assuming raw pcm input file

    age, ct, titlesort, album, tracknum, url, tag, title, disc, fs

    WHERE url = ?

    Thought so ;-). There's a known problem with slimserver losing its
    connection to MySQL. The but 947 contains an "experimental fix" for this.
    You could give it a try (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=947)

    MySQL isn't officially supported, though.
