Comment 1 Oliver Sampson 2013-11-13 04:30:20 EST
Description of problem:
When using Amarok with *very* large playlists, (e.g., my entire library with 9106 files), Amarok exits after playing the first file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load a lot of mp3s into Amarok, e.g., 9106 mp3s.
2. Press play.
3. Wait for the song to end. Amarok exits.

Actual results:
Amarok exits.

Expected results:
Continuation to the second track.

Additional info:
It appears as if Amarok actually exits cleanly or almost cleanly, rather than crashing, as there is no notification from ABRT. Upon restart, the playlist is not retrieved from the last execution instance.

(Not quite sure how I submitted the bug without typing in the description. I think the edit box didn't have focus when I typed "Shift-W h e n" and bam, it submitted. I don't think I want try a confirmation attempt.)
Comment 3 Oliver Sampson 2013-11-18 08:09:05 EST
After some fiddlin' the problem may lie rather with the use of "Shuffle" which I use on large playlists, and don't with small playlists. However, Amarok now consistently crashes after one or two plays with a largish playlist on shuffle.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2013-11-18 09:28:48 EST
Ideally, would you mind submitting this upstream to bugs.kde.org against amarok?  This will likely require some investigation/feedback between you and upstream developers, and that is the best way to facilitate a constructive resolution.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 15:34:41 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

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 19 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.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 14:13:15 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 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.
