Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117880
Rythmbox forgets libary contents between restarts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem:
When I close Rythmbox, and then opens it again, the media libary is
empty. I have to re-add the contents of the libary each time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (on this particular machine, my other machine is all right)
Steps to Reproduce:
Remembering the contents of the libary
Hmm... When i tried to open Rythmbox, I got the message asking me
about where I stored my music. I ansvered, and it found my songs. But
when I restarted, the libary was empty. I have tried to delete the
rythmbox folders under ~/.gconf/apps and ~/.gnome2 in hope that this
would reset the config. I did not do this before getting asked about
which folder I used. The folders are both regenerated.
Known bug with 0.6.7-- it's only triggered if the user has never run
rhythmbox on that particular machine, apparently, which is why you're
seeing it on only one machine.
Fixed with the new upstream release of 0.6.8, released 05 March 2004
and should hopefully make it in before FC2
what do you mean? I have ran rythmbox several times, both before
upgrading from the FC1 boxed version, and also after upgrading.
The problem is that each and every time I open rythmbox, I have to
reinsert my music folder...
Another thing I have seen is that it is somwhat poorly optimized - On
my 650 Mhz P3 384 MB RAM computer, rythmbox gives me about 20% CPU
utilisation when playing. XMMS stays at 4-10% while playing the same
oggs, using the eSound output plugin.
Why do I get the feeling that updating FC1 for such UI bugs are
getting lower and lower priority (such as this and the
fam+user-mountable-media-bug). FC2 is'nt out yet, and it should
therefore be patched until FC2 is out and stable.
just my 2 cent...
Are you sure you're using 0.6.8?
please read again - I (was) using 1.6.7, and had a problem. It
dissapeared when upgrading to 1.6.8 from freshrpm's
Little off-topic, but still:
Thank you very much for providing me (and many others) with a great
music management application. It is really great (at least when pached
so it can play .mp3's as well... Don't the frauenhofer license allow
for mp3 to be distributed freely as long as you don't make money on
distributing it?) Anyway - ogg's have much better quality.
Even more off-topic:
When will it be possible to edit the song info directly using the
"properties" dialog? Isn't this quite simple to implement using the
id3* shell commands?

We're working on tag editing, but it requires some more work in GStreamer.
