View Full Version : Why is artist via genre so slow?

Hi,
Here are two common scenarios:
1) Browse artist, select an artist, and all albums are displayed. This takes no time at all.

2) Browse genre, select an artist, and all albums are displayed. This takes ages!

I have 371 albums (5144 songs) on a W2K laptop (300 MHz, 192 MB RAM), Slimserver 6.1.1.

To me, this seems to be a fairly trivial indexing problem. (It has nothing to do with the setting for "Filter genres at the album & track level" which I thought initially.) Does Slimserver use a SQL database? Do you have any suggestions on how to avoid this problem?

Cheers,
Munge

Munge - yes, slimserver does have an SQL database. SQLite in 6.2, moving to Mysql. If you are using 6.1.1 you might want to try a more recent 6.2.2 nightly. This is an area of continuing work. Though that does sound like an underpowered machine.



Ceejay.
