Amarok 2 doesnt import all of 1.4 collection database

Bug Description

Binary package hint: amarok

Jaunty 9.04 fresh install
amarok 2:2.0.2mysql5.1.30-0ubuntu3
libqt4-sql-sqlite 4.5.0-0ubuntu4

When I try to import my old sqlite collection.db from Amarok 1.4 it only imports ~48 tracks from my 20,000+ collection. Sometimes it will import only 2 tracks and other times some arbitrary value but always less than 50. Some items show in the list simply as "Imported - ".

The scan then quickly completes and reports it has been a success. My collection.db works fine in Amarok 1.4 and I have even tried with some backups of the file I made over a year ago so I doubt the file is corrupt.

Open Amarok. Navigate to Settings-->Configure Amarok. Choose the collection tab. Click import. Follow the wizard selecting sqlite and pointing amarok to your old archived collection.db. Either check or uncheck to import album art - it makes no difference.

Ok after messing around a bit I seem to have found a work around for the problem.

Firstly use Amarok 2 to fully index your music collection. THEN use the collection import wizard to load in your old database. This seems to have done the trick for me although there is no way to know if it has imported all the data (ratings, play counts, etc) for each and every file...

Hi there!

Thanks for reporting this bug! Your bug seems to be a problem with the KDE program itself, and not with our KDE packages. While we appreciate your issue, it would be better if it was tracked at, so that the KDE developers can deal with this speedily and have direct communication with you as the reporter for more effective debugging.
