Again a problem with Amarok.

When I want to (re)build my collection Amarok freezes. It first searches my mp3 directory and after giving 100% it freezes and does nothing.

I reinstalled it, but that doen'solve the problem. And I even installed the new version from the test repo, but it still gives the same problem.

Does someone have any idea?

If you add smaller collection, does that work?

It is linux harddrive. If I add a smaller collection it gives the same problems.
If I wait (very long) tough, I can play music. But I need to add it directly to my playlist. But in the screen on the left it still keeps saying: (translated) "Please wait for a while, while the collection will be build".

The collection is about 1200 files.

I too have that problem.  I have a very large collection of music on a hard drive.  Is your collection on a network shared drive or on your machine?

It's on my machine. I think it's a bug in Amarok and I would like to make a fresh new install for Amarok. But when I uninstall and reinstall it. I still have my old settings. Doe anybody know how to delete the old settings?

Solved!

I uninstalled Amarok, deleted the directory .kde/share/apps/amarok/ (first made a copy to be sure).
Then I installed Amarok again. It searched my collection and averything works as it should.

The only thing is that I don't have my covers anymore, but that's not such a huge problem.
