View Full Version : Mac OSX Slimserver listing many songs twice

Hi all,

For some reason Slimserver (latest public release) is listing most of
my tunes twice. When I add an album to the playlist each song gets
played twice. Most of the albums have all the songs listed twice. I
tried rebuilding my iTunes library and followed that with a rescan but
it's still showing twice as many tunes as I have.
How can I trash the database and start again?

I've got slimserver to use iTunes for it's library and I left the path
to my music folder blank (just in case it was getting the songs from
iTunes and directly from the music folder)

Cheers,

Joe

Right now the best way is to remove ~/Library/Caches/SlimServer/slimserversql.db

Is your music on a separate Volume by any chance?

Dan,
Yep, all the music is on an external drive called iTunes (I've stuck
aliases to it in both users' home folders where the iTunes folder
usually goes so we all see the same library).
I'll try trashing the .db file this evening.

Thanks for the advice
Joe

I've got the wrong trousers on and they're going wrong!

Ok - I would recommend not setting a Music Folder in the SlimServer settings as well.

So SlimServer should find the iTunes XML file, and then see that the Music
Folder is on an external drive.
