agreed. this would work as good as the amazon solution, and it doesn't have all these restrictions.

after all this time now, there are still some elemtental juk-features that amarok does not have, which makes me use juk sometimes (although there are things about juk that suck).
it would be really great if you added
1. the possiblity to create smart playlists based on directories and to remove the precreated playlists (last-played, newest...)
2. a rename-feature, similar to that of juk
3. a dynamic (i.e. where i can define the syntax) info-from-filename detector; this is really better than just taking the first "-" and making everything left of it artist and right of it title. btw. is there a way i can turn this off? it really sucks because it is no longer obvious wich files are tagged and which arent...

thanks a lot for your work, i really love amarok (except for those missing feature ;) ) and i think it has great potential

p.s: do you know by chance why the freebsd-builds do not come with xine-support (xine-engine runs smoothest on my computer)?

Why do you want to do so? Do these plylists anny you so much you cannot stand them?

100% total agreement.

I hate that Amarok restricts you in so many ways when a few simple juK ideas would swallow me whole.

I think your libtunepimp is too new. Try version 0.3, not 0.4, which is incompatible.

Hi it depends on your distribution. If you've compiled amarok by hand you need to enable musicbrainz with configure... (I think the default for newer versions is disabled)

Sorry guys.
But this was best joke I'd seen last years in software.

What do you think why guys buy a HT-cpu?
To switch that feature off for a mp3-software? Or to be able listen to their mp3 and make some usefull meanwhile with same machine?

Next time you should simply write "Sorry, we aren't able to work on such machines, we will fix that ASAP." and not "Please switch that off so we will work".

Hope, that will realy fixed. As nice as amarok is: But with such statements you may lose all your respect you got for your software. (and not just to me) And meanwhile I had to use other good threaded working mp3 player on my nice HT-cpu (enabled).

Sounds like you are just a little disappointed in the ability of HT to pretend it is a SMP machine. My research shows HT to have stability issues all over the place, just google a little and you will see.

On a real SMP machine these issues are not present. This leads me to stay with the crowd that thinks this is a Linux kernel scheduler issue.

Remember we could have left you with no warning at all and just left you to figure out where the problem is.

I also would like to know what audio manager makes such extensive use of threads as amaroK does.

Oh, and one last thing. If you're serious about performance try a real SMP machine, multiple cpu or multiple core, not a single core pretending it's two. Another sorry attempt by Intel to try to keep a strong hold on the market by creating hype while other manufacturers pass them by with slower clock speeds imho.

Report

ok, after all that answers making some points clear:

1. I'm not willing discuss about SMP vs. HT vs. Single CPU - this is not the forum for that. And I'm sure due my expirience: doesn't run on HT - doesn't run on (all) SMP-boards.

2. The problem to me wasn't that there was such a bug. Never. So don't say me I shouldn't cry about a bug. I didn't that.

3. The real point of an irritation was (and is) that I get a messagebox that I have to switch of a feature of my computer 'cause this software doesn't run on it. This is such a kind of snootily statement which never should happen.

So - you had fixed that. Real fine. But one request: You should never tell users to switch off parts of their hardware for a software. One "sorry - we have real trouble - may you help us?"-box is even better in such a situation.

now I think we may close that here.

thats what they were trying to explain. HT is not the same as SMP, it is a fak smp and it is buggy. amarok uses threads, and HT doesnt work very well with that. it isnt amaroks fault. they shouldnt dumb down the app just to satisfy users of pentium 4's. also, as opposed to windows users, many linux users have multi-cpu machines and amc cpus. people with p4 HT's are not the majority.

also, the most important part, ITS FIXED!!!!

Report

seb

Calm down. The fact is, that since none of the developers own HT capable machines, it is impossible to be aware of the problems until we are alerted by the wider community. Adding a warning dialog does nothing to fix the problem, but it does at least alert the user.

I'm using amarok but I don't understood
some things:
1)are lyrics saveable outside amarok
(for backup, when I format my HD, I don't
want to redownload them all)
2)is it possible to specify somewhere
others lyrics web-pages to check?
3)Is interface customizable? (I don't
need that big favorite songs panel...)

I installed last amarok and my Home.desktop file now opens amarok instead my home folder.

Same occurs for Trash Icon and System Icon on desktop.

Anyone have an idea?

amaroK is great. I like it, every day =)

It's possible that any version of amaroK becomes support for external players e.g. Rio Karma?
