Hmmm.  The Fedora cryptopp package doesn't have CryptoPP15AlignedAlloc* functions.   I would suggest Fedora users not go beyond 19.0.90 for now.

EDIT:

Looks like the Fedora 32 bit builds of cryptopp disable SSE2 which in turn removes the AlignedAlloc functions.  I've submitted a bug to Fedora and I'll whip up a work-around for us Fedora users tomorrow.

The problem "file name" is fixed in this build, but concerning those crashes reported in the build ..91, here the latest news:

mc crashes, when I click into the undefined (the far right area next to the field "Access Rating" in the screen shot) segment of the row title bar. This is reproducible in any window.

The running Unity dash icon still randomly disappears. I'm guessing it's because of the .ico file used with multiple embedded sizes - it might be better to use one large .png file instead and let the system handle the resizing?

Things specific to distro's other than debian will be a pretty low priority until the main issues have been addressed.
The icon that's used for the unity bar isn't the ico file, it's provided to the xserver via a function. I suspect the way we are doing windowing has something to do with the icons in the bar. Even on non-compiz desktops the behavior is a bit weird in the taskbar when you open a dialog box for example.

Got it. Fixed in next build.

Question Re: Smartlists JRiver Media Center 19.0.92
« Reply #7 on: December 14, 2013, 10:54:06 am »

Help and advice, please. I have downloaded successfully MC 19.0.92 onto Linux Mint Debian Edition along with some 10k+ music files.  I would like to set up some smartlists, but am having some trouble. All of my music (some 10k+ files are classified by multiple genres.

For example: "I'd Like You For Christmas" performed by Julie London has in its properties genre: Christmas, Female Vocalist, Romance, Mood,
I have other songs with other multiple genres in their properties ranging from Barbershop to '50's, doo wop, etc.

Questions:
1) How can I use these MC 19 to set up playlists with single or multiple genres when most of my songs have multiple genres? I could do this on my old Media Jukebox 8.400 from where I imported my music library.

 2) Is there a way on MC 19 (as on MJ8) to omit the playing of certain genres? For example, I'd like to NOT play any Christmas songs before Thanksgiving and after Jan 1.

Thanks,
tlcmd (aka Dick)

Hi Dick,

Since smartlists are platform independent, I think for the sake of reaching more people you'd best ask here.

tlcmd:
Have you studied Smartlist Rules and Expressions and/or the Expression Language?

Pretty sure you can do those things with a smartlist.

That's understandable, so I've installed Debian 8 (Jessie/Testing) alongside Ubuntu, Windows and OS X. If I notice any issues on Debian, I'll be sure to report them. :)

Just installed on Linux Mint "Petra" and it works without any install issues.
There are a few things not working:

* I cannot "browse" to the location where my audio-files are located
  (can put the location in by typing the location directly
* I cannot change the filelocation of audio-files in menu-item "options" "file location"
* Did not find the setting to start the server at start-up of the system (have now added JRiver to the list of programs to start-up automatically by Mint but only want the server to run)
* menus sometimes close abruptly
* I cannot "go back" one step in menus. For example I choose an artist - the album and then want to go back to artist.
  (this used to work with my side-button of the mouse)

As I want jriver to run on Debian instead of Mint, I Tried to install the latest version of Debian.
The installation went ok but installing jriver gave me a lot of issues with dependencies.
As I am a beginner, which options do I need to install from the Debian dvd, I mean things like
use as webserver are needed?

Having trouble with this release. Installed musepack-tools (Mint 15), but still complaining about musepack-tools:i386  and I cant seem to install that either

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 musepack-tools:i386 : Depends: libmpcdec6:i386 (>= 1:0.1~r435) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

You probably have to sudo dpkg -r the dependencies for the amd64 version first.
Still, you shouldn't need the i386 version since the dependencies are supposed to allow for either amd64 or i386.

Make sure you've got the i386 version of libasound2 installed, then look at the alsa devices in MC.
