View Full Version : [ubuntu] Amarok stalling building collection

August 1st, 2008, 07:15 PM
Ok as the name suggests amarok is stalling out when I build my collection. I keep my mp3s on a 320gb external and when it starts to build the collection I hear the external spinning up and everything. When it reaches 10% it just stalls... every time... the external stops being seeked and it just sits there... i let it run over night at 10% when I woke up it was still at 10%.

I have used amarok on this pc with the external before but I was running sabayon 3.5 and it worked fine (although it took a while to read 300gb of mp3s).

Is there anything anyone knows of that could be causing this?

I have the same problem. I found out that certain mp3 albums are causing the problem. If I remove them from the folders that are scanned, then the "build collection" doesn't freeze. These are all mp3 albums by the same artist. I don't know why though. I checked file permissions and owners.
