View Full Version : Slimserver has gone slightly mad

I'm playing a sorted (i. e. non-shuffled) playlist just now, which
contains a few albums. The playlist is displayed fine on the player's
and the web interface. Likewise, "Now playing" is advancing song by
song on both interfaces.
It's just that the songs that are actually playing have nothing to do
with the displayed song. It decided to play from the beginning of the
playlist, even though the playlist was not finished, so that the
display still thinks it's in the middle of the pl.

This is with 6.1-trunk as of a few hours ago.

Sorry, hit send a little too soon. My log has lots of these:

--- Monkey's Audio Console Front End (v 3.99) (c) Matthew T. Ashland ---
Decompressing...

Error: 1002

Apparently slimserver has skipped a few songs at the end of the pl it
couldn't play for whatever reason, thus arriving at the beginning of
the playlist. However, the displayed info didn't get updated. Thus
it's playing the first song of the pl but displaying the info of the
first unplayable song and so on.

The files in question look to be regular .apes, worked fine until recently.

Christian,

If you can recreate this problem, can you run with the --d_source debug
flag and post the log?

Thanks,

This was due to a bug in the newest version of mac for linux, which
makes it fail if asked to decode a file it cannot write to. A
downgrade fixed it.

I understand Vidur is already working on this.
