I have my music stored on a NAS and i'm trying to build my collection with mysql but its not happening. Amarok can see and scan the files ok but wont build the collection. I have tried to use SQLite but gave up after an hour as its so slow.

Can you manually connect to the mysql server using the username and password for the amarok account? Are there any error messages being generated?

manual connect is fine, this is what i got from the terminal:
"Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 45
Server version: 5.0.51a-3ubuntu5 (Ubuntu)

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer"

I Have since been able to get amarok try and build the collection but it stopped at about %70

Well before i went to bed last night, i left amarok to build the collection. Got up this morning and there's still no collection. Can anyone help?
