Hi

SlimServer_v2005-03-11.dmg + OS X 10.3.8 + approx. 3000 songs:

- "Rescan" takes a couple of minutes

SlimServer_v2005-03-15.dmg (and 03-14 also):

- "Rescan" never seems to end (waited approx. 4 hours) ...

What is(are) the best debug option(s) to turn on
to provide info to help debug this?

Mike

--d_info, --d_scan and if you are using itunes, --d_itunes

The iTunes scan, initially will take a bit longer than in 5.4.1 because of a
recently uncovered bug where itunes was not supplying all the correct
information that is required by slimserver. Thus, itunes serves up the list of
songs, with its version of metadata and the server still has to do a read on
each file to fill in the blanks.

As further background:
(1) I'm using iTunes
(2) Although the scanning doesn't seem to end,
after a while browsing will show all the songs

Did something major get done to the rescan code
between the 11th and 14th ...?

OK, from the log files version 03-11 successfully scans
the iTunes library and stops scanning.

Here are the log-file lines reporting the end of the scan ...

Whereas when version 03-15 gets to the same point it starts scanning again :-O

Here are the associated log-file lines ...

Does this help (or should I e-mail someone offline the full log files) ...?
