If you want to include verbatim text, say for some program code, in a frame in beamer, you have to pass the fragile option to the frame, like so:
GeSHi Error: GeSHi could not find the language tex (using path /home/robfelty/robfelty.com/wp-content/plugins/codecolorer/lib/geshi/) (code 2)
Though latex usually doesn’t really care about whitespace at the beginning of a line, in this case it does. If you don’t have your begin and end frame statements at the beginning of a line when you are trying to use the fragile option, your document will not compile. It’s frustrating.
p.s. also note that you can’t use verbatim text with overlays in beamer.
