View Full Version : Scanning music directory hangs

I have installed slimserver successfully and running it succesfully for a while.

Now I have added some more songs to my music library and I am trying to rescan everything.

This process takes up the CPU slowly and hangs the machine in 3-4 minutes.

when I do a "ps aux" command, I can see slimserver slowly taking all the memory and after a point everything locks.

Any help on this is appreciated.

thanks
Venki

check to make sure you have no playlists that point to other playlists.

also make sure you have no links/shortcuts that point to other locations in your
music library.

both of these cases cause infinite loops.
