Been using Jaikoz for ages and I generally love it. I have about 12,000 tracks on a Synology NAS and manage the library from Windows machines. However, when my Windows install started throwing loads of exception errors while trying to save changes (I'll have to post separately about that), I thought I'd try running on a different PC running Ubuntu.

I've been able to get Jaikoz fired up, but unfortunately cannot see any of my network shares and thus can't load my music. The file>open window shows only my user home directory; I see shares mounted in my /media folder but clicking on them shows no subfolders or content.

Any ideas?

Jaikoz will show the permissions based on the user you are running as, so I can only assume you have mounted your drives on linux with permissions that prevent Jaikoz seeing the files ?

Actually since you say there was errors when trying to save changes on Windows, I wonder if this is also related to lack of permissions ?

Hi Paul,

Thanks so much for the prompt reply. It was in fact a mounting issue...for some reason the Docker container running Jaikoz was rejecting the mounts, so I created a new container and it's working fine.

Now the Null Pointer Exception error that I emailed you about is happening under Linux as well. I'm going to try to pare back the CSV file with my changes to include only the relevant columns and see if that may work.

Best,
Dan

Unfortunately no luck on the NullPointerException issue. I pared back the import file to only the few fields (Genre and Custom) that had changes, but still no luck.

All your mp3 files seem to have a CHAP (Chapter) field that is causing problem if converting from ID3v24 to ID3v23

Workaround is to either stick with ID3v24 by modifying Preferences:Save:ID3v2 Tag:Write v2 Tag Version

or

- Enable View/Show ID3 Tabs
- Select ID3 Edit tab
- Right click on Unknown List header and select Empty Column
- Any songs with data in that column should now show as red.
- Then run File:Force Save Changes

Great, the problem is due to duplicate CHAP frames (okay if you just have a single CHAP frame) and we have already fixed Jaikoz (and SongKong) to cope with this ready for the next release.

One more thing for the record if it helps with the mystery: This happened after I re-ripped about 7,000 of the tracks to FLAC, and created a copy of those as MP3 for portable use with ffmpeg in batch mode.

Not sure if that did it, especially since I used bare minimum parameters, but it's the only thing I can think of that's different since starting to use Jaikoz a long time ago.

Anyway, thanks again!

Thanks I am sure that is what caused it, since ffmpeg doe smake sure of chapters
