Dear God I am struggling with Pmusic. I seem unable to index my music. Each time I return to the browser window after indexing it reports 'index missing' (Racy) Whatever am I doing wrong? Surely it should not be this difficult?

Huh... seems Pmusic cant index via a symlink, path has to be absolute. Who would have known.......
Once given an absolute path to my music directory at /mnt/ home/Music/, indexing works, specifiying a path which includes a symlink (/root/Music) where Music is a symlink fails.

219 seems to be able to build indexes, but then says they dont exist in the browser window.

Exactly the same with 220.

How could I know, if you didn't report. Thank you!!! Smile

Could you post your index file (or parts of it) here. Depending on your index configuration and your music files, you'll find it in $HOME/.pmusic/index_alphabetic, index_playlists, index_directories and index_all.

This makes me a bit curious....

How do you set up the index configuration? Are you setting any of the options in the advanced tab (in MyMusic manager (2.2.0) / Index manager)? This could be weak point since I 'never' use them myself.

If indexing depends on meta-tags (advanced tab), the genre information is supposed to show up immediately, while a quick indexing (no advanced filters) should load genre information as a post_function - first show filenames, then show meta-info when loaded. This function can of course be switched off in preferences.

Could you please....

1.)
Run a simple indexing an see if that works (do not set anything in advanced tab).

2.)
Show a pic of the advanced tab, so I can see your settings when things fail.


Thanks
Sigmund

YES... indexing works with 'simple' approach.

Here is how I would set the filter

Thank you, I will dig into this, - hopefully in the weekend. Please give some feedback when you see 2.2.1 in the scenes.

I gave it quick look, and the problem doesn't seem to be that complex. This test version should fix:
- index a symlink dir
- index with metatags
- index genre tag


Does it???
