Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1015870
songs in playlist cannot be sorted nor re-ordered
Last modified: 2015-06-29 08:34:04 EDT
Description of problem:
When creating a new playlist in Rhythmbox, the order of the songs cannot be modified and seem locked in "sorted by Artist" mode. Trying to move the songs around with the mouse of to click on the tabs to select another type of sorting does not produce any effect.
100% of the time. I do not recon getting this behaviour in any of the previous Rhtythmbox releases.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Rhythmbox
2. Create a new playlist using the + button on the bottom left corner
3. Drag some entries of your main collection to the new playlist, preferably with different albums and artists
4. Select the playlist
5. Try re-ordering the tracks manually, or sorting them by album or track number for instance
Nothing happens, the playlist order is locked down. Based on the ordering, it seems locked in Artist sorting, tried a couple of different playlists to verify.
The user should be able to move the track list freely or use any sorting.
Same behaviour is happening in the version of Rhythmbox 3.0 released in Debian sid this week. Suggests an upstream bug.
The problem has gone for me.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
