I rebuilt rawhide rhythmbox 0.9.6 in mock and while it seems to fix the file
watching, multimedia keys no longer work. Any fix on the horizon for FC6?

Tried the same 0.9.6 rpm I built for Comment #3 on my laptop and it worked fine.
Maybe it's all we need for fc6?

Michal, can you please try the rhythmbox-0.9.5-7.fc6 that I have just pushed
into updates-testing ?
If test results from the fc6 update are positive, we should put the
fix into RHEL5 too
Built as rhythmbox-0.9.5-7.el5
From the following testing, the bug was not reproduced in rhythmbox-0.9.5-4.fc6.
I am not sure if my testing steps are wrong. Matthias, could you pls take a look
at it? Thanks.
Retested the following steps with rhythmbox-0.9.5-4.fc6 on
RHEL5-Client-20061024.5 x86_64 system:
1. Launch rhythmbox by Applications -> Sounds & Videos -> Rhythmbox
2. Skip all steps in the wizard
3. In the Music Player window, highlight Library entry in the left panel
4. Click Music -> Import File, select a folder which contains track files
Result: the track was imported immediately.
5. Right-click the tracks in the Library -> Remove
Result: the track was removed successfully
Also tested the steps in rhythmbox-0.9.5-8.el5 on RHEL5-Client-20061207.0 and
the problem was not found.
The bug was about external remove events. So, you have to remove the file in a
I tried the following steps with rhythmbox-0.9.5-8.el5 on RHEL5-Client-20061207.0:
1.In g-t, type gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/rhythmbox
2.Launch rhythmbox by Applications -> Sounds & Videos -> Rhythmbox
3.In the Music library setup, specify a path for the libary, such as ~/music_lib
4.In g-t, try to add files to ~/music_lib and observe the library source by GUI
5.In g-t, try to remove files to ~/music_lib and observe the library source by
GUI of rhythmbox
Result:4&5 Nothing happened from GUI of rhythmbox. It looks it still has problem.
Hi Alexander, are my test steps right? could you pls take a look at it? Thanks.
Another finding: if restart rhythmbox after "In g-t, try to add files to
~/music_lib" or "In g-t, try to remove files to ~/music_lib", it will take effect.
Verified on RHEL5-Client-20061226.nightly with rhythmbox-0.9.5-8.el5, import and
delete files in Library works fine. So resolve this bug, if anybody could
reproduce it again, pls feel free to reopen it.
