Re: 2251 - crashes, one serious because it looks like db is damaged

Good point for locked files I love https://lockhunter.com/ that allows to kill processes locking it. Thanks for the link Peke. That looks useful. But I am sure that you don't want your customers to be killing off system processes that may be locking files. It would be best if MM5 initialisation det...

Re: 2251 - crashes, one serious because it looks like db is damaged

Db is most likely OK Yes, I know that, my report explicitly says that the db is OK What I was says that the chain of events make the db " look " like it is damaged, ie. you get a dbox offering to build a new db. What I am reporting is: 1. There are a couple of crashes 2. MM5's auto-recovery of one ...

2251 - crashes, one serious because it looks like db is damaged

I received two crashes while browsing This one ... I was in the "Online" view for album which was not in my collection, and I clicked the "My Library", and the crashed happened. The crash may not be related to this action, because I could not reproduce. The 2nd crash is more serious. I retarted MM5,...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

Can you Copy/Paste INI file after change and prior to mm5 start? I have done that twice before. Here is again , the little box shows before I start MM5 for the 1st time, and the big window is after MM5 has run once. Also try these: a) do not rename to MM5.DB b) Do rebuild first and then Restart MM5...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

EDIT2: I re-sent you link to your DB (with 'Rebuild database' in MM5 and the flag set). Finally works fine even after using Rebuild FTS in MM4. So the Peke's procedure worked fine on your database for me. I confirm that the database you sent works in MM4 ok. I redid the procedure again myself: inst...

Re: MM5 and Spotify [#16521]

As for the matching: yes, this will need some more tuning and certainly will never be 100% accurate. I am afraid that matching just based on artist/title (without comparing album) could result in false matches which is probably even worse case. Probably just some tuning like removing the " (remaste...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

Maybe, I haven't tested. But more probably you put the ForceMM4Compatibility=1 to wrong section of the MM.INI (needs to be under [Options] section) or maybe you put it to INI from MM4 (instead of INI of the MM5 version)? No, I have already sent you an image (in my PM) showing before and after start...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

step 10 (in MM4) seems needless, step 5 (in MM5) does the repair, i.e. 'rebuild full text search index' in MM5 with the ForceMM4Compatibility=1 INI flag set, BTW 'Rebuild database' in MM5 is also needless. Just tested directly on your MM.DB that you shared with me via the PM and it worked fine to m...

Re: My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

the recovery procedure that Peke suggested to you did not work, because you run it within MM4, you need to run it within MM5 , I mean the Maintain Library > Rebuild Full-Text Search index with the ForceMM4Compatibility=1 in Mediamonkey.ini (of MM5) You have misunderstood what I meant. Peke's proced...

Re: White screen-frozen?

Check whether you are on version 2250.
They released a new version today which fixes a crash that happened with the version that they released on Monday.

My MM4 db has become upgraded to MM5 somehow?

Somehow my MM 4 database has been upgraded to 5.0.51 ... This means that I can no longer add tracks to MM4, because I get this dbox . I looked through my backups, and the upgrade happened sometime between the 2nd and 7th of May 2020. On the 4th of May I did this, as described here . the databases ar...

Re: Option to Open in Explorer?

Just wondering if this floating menu option has been removed from MM5? Could be I'm just not finding it (only just started testing). But if it has been removed, please put it back. ? ... It is where it was in MM4, ie. in FindMoreOfSame|Explorer Maybe you had a custom script which gave you something...

Re: 2247 - middle panel vertical scrolling issue

BTW: If you disable the "Ingo panel" view element in the artist view does it make any difference? i.e. it looks like expanding the "Info Panel" with the text from Wikipedia could be a trigger of this issue? To be confirmed. I don't think that it can happen with the Info panel disabled, because the ...
