i've just unistalled ss 6.0.1 and installed ss 6.1.1 on my linux server and now ss only finds 753 albums with 11064 songs by 519 artists - before the reinstall it found approx 1000 albums by 800-and-something artists

all the files are mp3 and stored in subfolders in one main folder on the same disc.

i've tried reindexing several times, but the issue remains

has anybody got any ideas as to what might be causing this?

is it possible that my folder tree might be causing this problem?

i've found out the following :

6.1.1 finds :
\\music\subfolder a\Fun-da-mental\With Intent To Pervert The Cause Of Injustice (1995)

but does not find :
\\music\subfolder e\Fun-Da-Mental\Erotic Terrorism
\\music\subfolder e\Fun-Da-Mental\There Shall Be Love!

could this be because "subfolder a" is scanned before "subfolder e" and that 6.1.1 for some reason ignores the folder because it belives it's already scanned it?

that was not the problem... :(

i tried copying :

\\music\subfolder e\Fun-Da-Mental\Erotic Terrorism

to

\\music\subfolder a\Fun-Da-Mental\Erotic Terrorism

but it was still not found, so it seems that this is not an issue with the subfolder structure...

inspired by this : http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1851 bug i tried to rename a file to lower case, but that gave no result...

anybody got any bright ideas?

i've just gone back to 6.0.1, and quess what?

Your music library contains 1482 albums with 20490 songs by 845 artists.

problem solved ;)

6.0.1 finds :
\\music\subfolder a\Fun-da-mental\With Intent To Pervert The Cause Of Injustice (1995)
\\music\subfolder e\Fun-Da-Mental\Erotic Terrorism
\\music\subfolder e\Fun-Da-Mental\There Shall Be Love!


but what it does do is list the artist as "Fun-da-mental" and "Fun-Da-Mental" so it seems like this has got something to do with 6.1.1 trying to do magic with different casing in tags.


i've filed this as a bug : http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2033
