Linux pitfall of soft links ln - Rhythm Box - Music Player on Ubuntu

Filed under

I came across a strange issue on one of my Ubuntu computers. I had added some more MP3 files to my music folder and so I refreshed them by performing an import of that directory in Rhythm Box. The import command will only add new files that are not already added.

To my surprise I ended up with two of each file in my library on Rhythm Box. After a lot of head scratching and thinking that it was a bug in the system I finally found the problem.

The reason for this is that the system I was running this on was a dual boot Windows / Linux computer. Although I hardly use Windows due to the lack of support for other operating system file systems the music files are all on my Windows NTFS partition.

I've been spending the past few days putting the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ through its paces the past few days with an array of benchmarks while comparing the performance to other ARM SBCs as well as a few lower-end Intel x86 systems too. Here is all you need to know about the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ performance. Read more
