Fix Quod Libet empty panes on Gentoo GNU/Linux (bug solving process)

PDF-version (for printing)

orgmode-version (for editing)

For a few days now my Quod Libet has been broken, showing only empty space instead of information panes.

I investigated halfheartedly, but did not find the cause with quick googling. Today I decided to change that. I document my path here, because I did not yet write about how I actually tackle problems like these - and I think I would have profited from having a writeup like this when I started, instead of having to learn it by trial-and-error.

Update: Quodlibet 2.6.3 is now in the Gentoo portage tree - using my ebuild. The update works seamlessly. So to get your Quodlibet 2.5 running again, just call emerge =media-sound/quodlibet-2.6.3 =media-plugins/quodlibet-plugins-2.6.3. Happy Hacking!

Update: I got a second reply in the bug tracker which solved the plugins problem: I had user-plugins which require Quod Libet 3. Solution: mv ~/.quodlibet/plugins ~/.quodlibet/plugins.for-ql3. Quod Libet works completely again.

Solution for the impatient: Update to Quod Libet 2.5.1. In Gentoo that’s easy.

Amarok - context on music - yahoo comes a tiny bit too late

There was a talk of Ian Rogers from Yahoo! who explained how labels did a hell of many horrible missteps in fighting p2p and in trying to push DRM, how Yahoo now offers a free music service, and how music software terribly lags behind the music scene. http://www.netribution.co.uk/2/content/view/1317/182/

But....

The context he talks about already exists. Just have a look at Amarok:

- Context: http://amarok.kde.org/d/en/index.php?q=gallery&g2_itemId=1375
- Wikipedia: http://amarok.kde.org/d/en/index.php?q=gallery&g2_itemId=1381
