Amarok: Unsafe at any speed

crunge: I can't help but wonder why Amarok is such an unstable piece of shit
mrecho: ya, dont like the new version
crunge: THe things it does it does well. What it doesn't do is... run
crunge: It's not the new version. It has always crashed just updating your library. And instead of fixing basic shit like that they're adding features
crunge: Amarok 2: Unsafe at any speed
mrecho: ive never had issues with amarok crunge ....
kaboofa: mpc :D
mrecho: even with 30+ gigs of music on it
crunge: Yeah. I have about that and it's never worked well. Not on Gentoo, not on kubuntu 32, nor kubuntu 64
mrecho: whats the main issue your having?
crunge: So I'll be browsing some websites right. Text websites, nothing with flash or sound. Amarok will be stopped, sitting in my tray. All of a sudden I get a notification saying Amarok has crashed
mrecho: wtf...
crunge: no reason I can get outside it rescanning my collection *which hasn't changed*
crunge: at it does this at random
crunge: I'm trying to add music to my girlfriend's ipod, which it seems capable of doing but when I *delete* songs it crashes.
crunge: When I launch it again if figures out that the songs are gone and I can try adding music again
crunge: and this isn't a bug it's just a retarded absence of a feature. You can add songs to a music device by finding a track and right click blah blah blah. Unless it's in your playlist. Can't do it from your playlist. So if you've got a playlist of the stuff you want, too bad
crunge: you have to find the actual playlist file and add that to your device. But it won't tell you where it actually saves the playlist. There is no Save As. Only Save.
crunge: which, it's probably in the fucking database. THere's an "export" option. So you *can* export it out of Amarok so Amarok can read it in and put it on your music player
crunge: Hey! I got those songs to load. And 80% of the titles are SHA1 hashes
