Description Craig Pemberton 2006-07-10 20:28:56 UTC
Description of problem: The cover manager is gorgeous, but the are a few funny
things going on. Looking at this screenshot you will see that Amarok thought
that a few dozen of my albums at the end of the list were the album "Cars".
There are also a few ironic although perfectly harmless errors (if you look
carefully you'll see it thought that the "Acadec CD" was "AC/DC" or that the
Four Seasons comes on a rock and roll mix). Also, some covers look like they
only partially downloaded. Look at the third to the last cover and you will see
that it is half grey.

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

How reproducible:
It may be due to my large music collection. I don't know. To produce this is
told the cover manager to retrieve the missing covers.

Actual results:
Cars! Everywhere!

Expected results:
Possibly, if a cover cannot be found, it should simply faily instead of being
wildly wrong?

It probably depends on your directory layout. Do you use the copycover amarok
plugin ?

Comment 3 Craig Pemberton 2007-01-11 20:40:30 UTC
I used the default for the Fedora package that came off of yum. I no longer have
this install and am now running Fedora Core 6. I can test again after winter
break and if you have any specific instructions I will follow them.

Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-03 14:21:45 UTC
Yes, please test again.
