It’s actually working.
Seriously, this is the first time since I don’t know when I’ve been able to use Amarok. There was one heart stopping moment at 57% when it was scanning my collection, but unlike 2.2.0 it simply paused, then went on to scan the reminder.
I’ve been able to throw the playlist and context menu around to get something I can live with, the playlist is sorted more or less to my liking,…I still think it’s overly complicated, and somehow it thinks that “The very best of 2 Unlimited” is the art of every album ever made but it’s working.
Bonus points, because it’s displays/sorts my collection in a different way, I’m playing music I haven’t heard in ages.
