I have 2 computers one of them contains a vast amount of mp3's
I run Amarok with an Mysql database to manage them.
My other computer an old laptop (compaq armada e500) is located elsewhere.
Because of speed i decided to connect to my mp3 collection using the database wich resides on my maincomputer.
I tested with the mysql client with the following commands and it connected without problems.
Mysql -hserver -u laptop -p
select * from artist;
I've also made sure i have write access on the database by using an update query.
So there is no problem with that.
I've setup a samba share on the main computer and mounted it on my laptop on the same location as on the maincomputer.
I can read and write there without problems.
No here's the trouble when i select a mysql database in, configure amarok=>collection, amarok crashes when i click apply or ok. I cannot start amarok anylonger. When i remove ~/.kde/share/config/amarokrc it starts without problems.
When i build the collection on the laptop itself using the built in database i have no problems.
Thing is the laptop is so damn slow i just want to use the database on the main computer. I run amarok from the standard repo's. Kubuntu 6.06 amarok 1.4
