I updated the path of my library files with Library Tools/Rename, Move Copy/Find and Replace.

I had linked my personal Music folder to where my music resides. I updated this path to the real path.

So I replaced /home/user/Music/ with /mnt/media/Music/

51K files had their path adjusted but the speed at which this happened looked like it was physically moving files. But there was no network traffic (/mnt/media is an NFS share) and there was no disk activity whatsoever.

In the end I got a tagging error popup.

Only 2376 files had their path adjusted.

I think this is just a database transaction so it should be lightning fast right?

I eventually "solved" it by removing /home/user/Music from library and importing /mnt/media/Music.

vorbis-tools leads to unresolvable dependency issues on Wheezy 64-bit:

It's likely my lack of knowledge and experience but I'm unable to resolve the dependencies. I eventually removed MediaCenter, did an autoremove to remove whatever stuff apt-get thought was unused and installed build 88 again.

The problem was that I was unable to install anything else while this pending vorbis-tools was present.

Is there a way to make mediacenter less dependent on vorbis-tools, like an optional thing?

Yes, it can just be taken out and the user will have to install oggenc into the executable path if they are going to use ogg encoding.
The interesting thing is that I got a similar error on ubuntu 13.10 x64 and did the
sudo apt-get -f install
and it finished up the installation fine.

What I ended up doing is removing vorbis-tools then manually installing the vorbis-tools:i386 .deb file and MC installed just fine after that with no dependency warning.

I gave it another try.

When I install vorbis-tools:i386 I get:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
vorbis-tools:i386 : Depends: libao4:i386 (>= 1.0.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

So I did:
$ sudo apt-get install libao4:i386

It did:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  cdrdao libao-common libao4
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libao-common:i386 libao4:i386

Then:
$ sudo apt-get install vorbis-tools:i386

It installed some crap and after that build 89 installed without complaining.

Nice one!

The interesting thing is that MC should work for both oggenc and lame with the 64 bit versions since they are just called from the command line however I can't seem to find a way to make that work in the debian control file.
The details on packaging for multiarch when you can used mixed architectures for dependencies is really not good IMO.
