View Full Version : Is this a bug? song search problem.



Steven Moore

Using a G4 800 mhz imac 512mb, 10.3.7. slim server 5.4.0. Wired
squeezebox. Netgear adsl router. Music on external FW HD in itunes
folder, index for itunes is in users directory. No symbolic links.

I have noticed on a couple of occasions that if I try and search for a
song. The Squeezebox will display searching.... Then it will display
empty, but flash an error every 10 seconds or so : "Problem connecting
to server, check server software is running" and this will continue for
about 3 mins. Then it will return to normal.
The SB will not take any input via the remote during this time, any
songs playing will continue playing okay.
On checking the computer the server seems to be doing a rescan as the
external HD is read/writing as when it's doing a rescan.
Has anyone else found this?
Should I report this as a bug?
Thank you.

On looking at the logs for the time the SB stopped taking input I found
the following:

which ever user the slimserver is running as doesn't have write access
to that directory.

Thanks John, I checked and the Playlists directory was not there, I
created it and did a rescan and it seems to have cured the problem.
Does the Playlists directory get created during installation? If you
check the server settings the playlists folder is set to
...../Playlists. If it's not there there, there could be a problem.

Thanks for the help.

good point -- what's the platform and how did you install? package or
tarball?
