    Plug-ins

    I've been using my SB1 (and now SB2) for over a year but never felt the need to download any plug-ins. However, the rave reviews of the 'Random' plug-in motivated me so I downloaded it along with the 'AlbumReview' and 'Biography' plug-ins. The .pm files are sitting in the plugins directory (alongside all the default plug-in .pm files) and I've rebooted SlimServer (hell, I've rebooted the PC) but they don't show up. All I seem to have is the original plug-ins. Embarrass me, what am I doing wrong?

    Random plugin should work from the Plugins directory (as Plugins/Random.pm), but
    the other two operate from their own directories (as
    Plugins/AlbumReview/Plugin.pm and Plugins/Biography/Plugin.pm

    Check on that for a start. Also, run from the command-line, adding --d_plugins
    as an option so that you can see any messages from the server when it tries to
    load each plugin. on windows, this is c:\program
    files\slimserver\server\slim.exe, Linux, its
    /usr/local/slimserver/slimserver.pl.

    Please read the installation notes - you have to install some additional
    perl modules. A package with instructions is available from where you
    downloaded the plugin.

    Randome plugin should be fine, once you see this. Michael Herger posted info
    regarding the other two.

    Thanks Michael. I did just need to RTFM. I downloaded the PERL modules and everything seems to be working now.
