sound converter does not convert anything
Last modified: 2009-01-14 12:24:33 EST
Description of problem:
if i try to convert an flac or an mp3 to ogg there's no output file, only directory structure.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q soundconverter
Steps to Reproduce:
1.select file to convert
the converted file
same thing happened in fedora 9
So what kind of preferences have you selected in the Preferences menu ? If you select "same folder as input file" for the output, does it work ? What if you add a single MP3 instead of a directory ?
no, the output is in a different directory.
as i said, it creates the directory structure (artist/album) but not the file itself.
however, after reporting this bug, i've tried to do it on another filesystem and, as strange as it may seem, it worked!
i'll test more later, when i'll be back from work.
and it's the same if i choose a dir or a single file.
on the same file system where i've seen the original bug (that is the /home partition), i've created another directory. the buggy place is /home/guzu/work.usbplayer/converted. the new dir is /home/guzu/converted, and it can create files there. after the conversion is done, i'll try again the buggy place.
now it works where it didn't worked before. maybe the config file from a previous version was not "acceptable" for the newer version and changing the path once, forced soundconverter to rewrite the config file in the correct format. i have no other idea :)
Hmmm, well there *are* bugs in Soundconverter :-), so it's just a matter of figuring out what went wrong here. Possibly it could be the config file. I'm going to close this as WORKSFORME for now, but feel free to reopen if you find out more about this. Thanks!
ok, assuming this bug will not hit anyone else, let it be closed :)
thank you too.
