    Thanks... the plugins in the live repo now work. Btw, what's the URL of the "test" repo?


    One thing I noticed in Extension Downloader is that if it fails to download a plugin one can not refresh the page to remove download failure message. The server has to be restarted to reset the ED page. So, even after peterw put the plugins back in the live repo there was no way to refresh or retry to reinstall the plugins without restarting the server. In effect one has to restart the server twice. Once to reset the ED page in order to try to install the plugin again and once after installing the plugin.

    http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/slim7/repodata-test.xml -- my http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/ area is all directory-browsable if you want to explore.

    I've seen that sort of behavior, too. Would you mind checking on bugs.slimdevices.com and filing a ticket if there's nothing about that already?

    Sorry about the trouble with CGI.pm, and thanks for letting me know. Since I rarely use SC on Windows, it would've been a long time before I saw the CGI dependency failure myself.
