Subject description: iTunes refugees, this is the music library you've been looking for!
 

I have a new favorite music player. This one's really close to perfection.

Sickeningly fast and stable
Xine backend, plays anything Gxine will play
Loads an iTunes library with no problems
Tag editing, including m4a
Embedded cover art support (excludes M4As as far as I can tell)
Equalizer
Sqlite database - fast searching
LastFM support
Gapless playback
And more... All in a small Puppy-friendly package!

This is compiled on 4.3.1 with a static libFOX. The pet includes taglib dependencies.

Hmm, interesting.

The music import is very fast and lists all the tracks.

I do have a small problem though, suddenly I have lots of duplicate tracks in list with different dates and run time length. Compared to a rox file listing on disk folder.

So, as an experiment I clicked on 'Alive and Kicking' track which showed two listings. One was 2:40 and the other 5:20 in length.

I checked the 2 minute track and indeed it cut off short.

So I right clicked and selected delete from list and also delete from disk was checked.

It then emptied the track list. (Minor panic in case all had been deleted)

I reloaded list from menu choice and it repopulated. The 2 minute track was gone and the other track played in entirety, correctly.

Anyone any idea what is going on here ?

Hmmm, that never happened to me yet.

I definitely recommend anyone should make a backup of their music collection before messing with a new player (especially with the delete or tag editing functions!).

I like to install applications outside the save file.
Mostly I can rename the pet to tar.gz and extract it and the application runs.

Not with gmm tho.

Any way to achieve this?

You need to copy the taglib libraries into /usr/lib (or somewhere in $LD_LIBRARY_PATH). After that it should work. If it doesn't, start it from the terminal and it should tell you what the problem is.

Thank you.
I hope symlinking does the job also.
When I start gmm in a terminal I get:
Code:
bash-3.00# gmm
bash: gmm: command not found
bash-3.00#
I try this in upup Lucid 003

EDIT
Well finaly I copied the libs to /lib
Same result.

This is what you need to know to make it run from the terminal.

I dont know whether it has any bearing, but sometimes I find a start up script wont run in the terminal. When this happens, renaming it by addin the .sh extension usually fixes it, ie, startprog to startprog.sh

Thank you Dave, but gmm is a binary.
But your remark triggered another way to start.
I issued now ./gmm and got a missing library message. libsqlite3-3.6.12.so.0
I saw magerlab's remark on this and did a symlink to the libsqlite3.so.0.8.6 I have.

This time gmm started but: still no good.
Maybe because I try it in lucid 003.

Yikes, I think you'd definitely want to recompile it for upup. There's probably already deb for it somewhere.

Nothing in lucid PPM.
On the web, deb and rpm.
So I'll see what I'll do.
Thanks anyway.

I appreciate what you are trying to do here, Bigpup. But I think we need a better solution than this. We need a real repository for community contributed software. I've asked Barry if one can be created on ibiblio, but he hasn't responded yet.

Asking developers to manually maintain an index is likely going to be met with a lot of resistance... because while we really enjoy creative work, administrative tasks are often big enough mental hurdles to make us procrastinate to the point of not contributing at all [at least this is totally true for me - I think I am not alone in having this problem]. We'd need something automated, or we need to have someone with a detail-oriented personality, who enjoys this type of thing, to volunteer to maintain it.
