View Full Version : Bug with compilation albums?

2006-09-30, 03:18
Hi all,

I've just logged a bug on the tracker. The details are below - so if anyone can suggest where I'm going wrong then please let me know :-)




Under Server Settings > Behaviour > Compilations I have:

List compilation albums under each artist


List albums by all artists for that album

I have an album which Slimserver shows as the following:

Title: 9 To 5
Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: The Eighties Movie Album
Genre: Misc
Track: 9
Compilation: Yes
File Format: MP3
Duration: 2:45
File Length: 6,639,576 Bytes
Bitrate: 320kbps CBR
Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
ID3 Tag Version: ID3v2.3.0
Location: /slim/music/Various/The Eighties Movie Album/09 - 9 To 5.mp3 (Download)
Date Modified: Tuesday, September 12, 2006, 12:23:49 PM

However, if I click the Dolly Parton hyperlink I get:

0 albums with 0 songs by 0 artists.

and Dolly Parton does not appear in the list of artists.

Slim 6.5.0 on Ubuntu, running on MySQL 5.0.22-Debian_0ubuntu6.06.2. Slim was build from the tarball, and was not installed using the .deb.

Pants! It doesn't matter how hard I search the bugs database, I never find what I'm looking for :-)

Okay, at least it's not me going mad. There IS a flaw in the way compilations are processed.
