    amarok not building collectoin


    Hi All,

    I was using amarok fine with 10.04, upgraded to 10.10 alpha, still worked fine. Decided alpha had a few bugs I didn't like so I completely removed it, installed 10.04 from scratch again (I have two partitions, / and /home, only formatted /). Now I can't get amarok to build for me at all. It plays mp3's no problem but when I try to build my collection it pretends to (takes a few minutes but goes relatively fast compared to what it should take to build) then shows 0 songs. I've already tried deleting amarok inside of /home/user/.kde/share/apps/amarok

    not sure what to do from here. Any advice appreciated. Thanks all

    I think the problem is MySQL, MySQL is needed as an external database engine now(your collections is a database), at least on Gentoo systems. Go into Amarok preferences and check the Database engine, look to see what it's currently set at. You might have to setup MySQL. Check on Ubuntu bugs too,,it might have already been reported and solved.
