View Full Version : Database bug for generic albums??

I believe I've proven to myself that SlimServer messes up when creating the slimserversql.db file from stratch *IF* there is an album with the following tags:

album = album
artist = artist

I use those generic tags when ripping sometimes and then go to FreeDB or where ever later to do the proper tagging. If I use the tags above the resulting album (named "album" of course based on the tag) does not point to the right tracks, but to the tracks of some other album.

I tested this by deleting and re-creating the entire slimserversql.db file several times with the same result. I then changed the tags (using Tag&Rename) to be:

album = album1
artist = artist1

and recreated slimserversql.db file one more time, and voila the album (now named "album1") is correct.

I've had this happen more than once. It seems that using the tags:

album = album
artist = artist

is confusing slimserver when it builds the database.

Good, you should file a bug report at
bugs.slimdevices.com<http://bugs.slimdevices.com>so you can get some
movement on your bug.

Ah, so I can go directly to doing a bug report -- will do.

I am new here. I was sort of expecting a "confirmation" discussion to verify the bug before I reported it.

Posted as bug #2559

confirmation is useful, but you may get sent directly to the bug
reports by some posters anyway. it forces someone else to do the
confirmation :)

Sometimes that works and happens. However, bugs that are filed are much more
likely to get fixed than those that are passively discussed on the
discussion list/forums, in my experience.

Well, in fairness he spent quite a bit of time himself validating the bug
with very detailed description of the steps involved -- it's not a classic
cast of "it's broke, fix it TIA!". If all bug reports in
bugs.slimdevices.com <http://bugs.slimdevices.com> were as detailed as this
one the developer's life would be easier.
