View Full Version : correcting a misspelled artist: Fleetwook_Mac won't go awayin SS.

Hi! My first post here. I got a SB for Christmas. I accidentally
added a fleetwook_mac folder and fleetwook_mac-rumors.m3u to the slimserver.

I'm running the SS 5.4.0 on a Pentium II Linux box, if that matters.
Anyway, I edited and renamed the m3u file and moved the rumors folder
from fleetwook_mac to fleetwood_mac (yes, I'm that old).

I used the web interface, clicked server settings, then clicked rescan.
I have done this several times, but fleetwook_mac won't go away--
although it's gone from the computer, it's living on in the slimserver.
Also the slimserver doesn't see the new folder within fleetwood_mac
or the new fleetwood_mac-rumors.m3u. How do I fix this? And if I can
do it without learning having to Perl that would be nifty.

Thanks!

server settings->performance-> wipe cache

it clears the id3 library competely and rebuilds. That should definitely clear
it up, but you have to endure another full library scan.

Thanks for this suggestion. I will give it a shot. I'll run it before
I go to sleep. Is there a reason why rescan doesn't do this?

Considering the number of times this comes up, wouldn't a
different term than "Rescan" be appropriate? Or at least
include a checkbox or some such in the Rescan section of
the main server settings page, e.g.

[ ] Wipe cache prior to rescan?

Frankly, hiding "wipe cache" under "Performance" isn't
especially intuitive, particularly when the "normal"
rescan description implies that it will "make sure that
its database is up to date".

One other thing - it looks as though "wipe cache" is not
available from the player UI; perhaps it should be one of
the options of the Rescan plugin. (Here also, it seems
unnatural for something as basic as Rescan to be in the
plugins menu. Just because Rescan *happens* to be a
plugin doesn't mean that's the best place for it; better
in the settings menu?)

Well, I did server-settings > performance > wipe cache
and it didn't correct the problem. Anyone have an idea?

BTW, I added some new albums which were noticed during the rescan, so I
know the rescan executed. Suggestions welcome!

Thanks,

Check out this thread from earlier today, because I had similar
problems to what you are describing:

Yup. Had the same thing, I use single FLAC + cuesheet, and I was trying to
change it by changing the directory name. But SlimServer works off the
tags, and it happens that in the cuesheet, each *song* has an artist tag, so
they all needed to be changed. Probably something similar with the OP's
MP3s/mpus.

This was suggested:

server settings->performance-> wipe cache

I did this, but it didn't correct the problem. New music was added, but
it still shows fleetwook_mac, despite the fact that I "rm -R" that
directory.

Anyone have a suggestion or explanation?

Do you have a playlist anywhere that might be referring to
this now deleted music?

I seem to remember here was a similar problem for a while
even if the music files didn't exist. Might be wrong, or it
might be fixed now, but it's worth checking.
