View Full Version : Debian nightly build - favorites stopped working

2008-09-10, 11:28
After not having upgraded for 2-3 weeks, I did an update yesterday, and my favorites then stopped working...
I've upgraded again just now and they still dosen't work.
I have two favorites that are dynamic pl's. They don't work.
I also have random mix as a favorite. It dosen't work.
If I select random mix in the main menu, it works ok though.

I get this in the log:
Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /usr/share/perl5/Slim/Player/Source.pm line 2314.

SqueezeCenter version: 7.2 - 23117 @ Wed Sep 10 02:08:15 PDT 2008 - Debian - DA - utf8

Just upgraded again:
SqueezeCenter version: 7.2.1 - 23141 @ Thu Sep 11 02:07:41 PDT 2008 - Debian - DA - utf8

No change. :-(

Anybody else using Debian who's observing this defect?

Disable any 3rd party plugins and restart SC just to make sure it is a SC problem and not one caused by a Plugin.

In 7.1 Weathertime was a suspect.

Also what do you mean "stopped working" ?
If it means favorites are not being saved then check directory permissions / disk quotas. Favorites are written to playlist directory - if SC cannot write to this dir, then Favorites may appear not to be working. Have you a playlist dir defined ? If so try changing it to a new one which you are sure has no protection.

By "stopped working" I mean the playlist isn't being populated.

When I press the "play"-icon for a certain favorite, the playlist is cleared, but not populated again.

Eg. in the main menu I choose Random mix, and it works fine. The playlist is populated and it starts playing.
If I then go to favorites and chose Random mix this way, it's not working.
Random Mix and Favorites afaik aren't 3rd party plugins.

I use Dynamic PL and Trackstat. Both have stopped working, either directly or as favorites.

I have som radio-urls in my favorites. They still work.

I haven't changed any permissions or anything else. SC runs a the only application on a dedicated Debian Etch server, that is left alone all the time.

The only thing that's been done is upgrading SC.

I've just checked the Aptitude log.
When I did the upgrade to 7.2~23109, the problems started.
