it's not actually opensuse 11.3's fault, it's mplayers. if you install mplayer 1.0 rc2 in 11.3 it works just fine.

to get subtitles working in 11.3 with mplayer 1.0 rc4, ass subtitles need to be disabled, in PMS.conf add the line:

mencoder_ass = false

Just installed the newest version of PS3 Media Server live CD. Works perfectly !
Installing it is abit harder (my PC hangs on Network settings) Figured it out and it really improved.
PS3media server restart works way beter, it crashes less often. Subtitles working perfectly. Yeah i am happy :P

I only miss my auto subtitle downloader, wich isnt working on linux.

Does this distro have ZFS support built in?

What are the main differences between this distro vs FreeNAS running PMS?

ZFS doesn't work yet under Linux so it doesn't support ZFS at this time.

I haven't used FreeNAS but I would imagine that everything my distro does can be done with FreeNAS. The major difference is that I've already done the heavy lifting and hard work to get everything working good with each other so that you just have to provide the media. :)

it's also cool whipping out a CD and proving your geekiness to your friends.

Any change on multithreaded mencoder support? I noticed it was mentioned, and looks like I need it for my underpowered cpu, to render 720p.

I am using the same svn build that I use on my ubuntu box. Ubuntu does ASS subs while opensuse does not. That is why I'm confused. It does not seem to be mplayer related.

Never mind, subs seem to break after the rc3 revisions. My bad. Thanks for the help though.

Anyone having memory issues with the current version?

I am running it on a VMWare ESXi4 server. I assigned the
ps3media server 4gigs of ram and 4 processor threads. After
booting, the memory usage continues to climb until the Kernel
panics because there are no more process' that could be terminated
to free up memory. It seems that if transmission is running from
a fresh boot and nothing to do, the memory usage climbs slowly.
If there are file(s) downloading, the memory usage climbs faster.
Killing transmission between uses slows down the memory usage.

FYI: If you are having this issue and get tired of having to manually
reboot the server try this.....
Add the following to /etc/sysctl.conf:
kernel.panic = 20
This tells the kernel that if it encounters a panic, it is to reboot the system
after a 20 second delay. By default, the kernel will never reboot when it
encounters a panic, but with the above setting you can force it to.

I had to do that because it would also peg the processor to 100%
and start crashing other virtual servers. Not good for me because
I host web services for other people/business's.
