some files are hashed again everytime filelist is refreshed

Asked by Sayyadin

I'm using version 1.0.3 on Ubuntu 9.10 .

Some of my mp3 files get hashed again every time the filelist is refreshed.
They seem to be ok because I can play them and everthing.

Someone has an idea why this is happening?

The DC++ core will rehash a file only if it's filename (case insensitive), size or last modified time has changed since it was last hashed. Where are you storing your share? Perhaps it is on some filesystem that is updating the modified time when you remount it. I seem to recall some issue with networked file systems causing files to rehash due to something similar.

Files stored on FAT32 will be rehashed after DST change, but this will happen only once after the change. Can't recall anything about networked filesystems, but it is possible.

In this case the files were mp3s so the most likely cause is either broken .sfv-file or you've broken the mp3s. (For sfv to consider mp3 broken all you need to do is change the tag or the file is really corrupted (you might not hear the click but it could be there)).

I have this problem too. I think it's due to linuxdcpp's inability to distinguish file "abc" from "Abc". It can only read case insensitive but and doesn't take into account that this limitation is not part of any modern flie system.

That DC++ bug #311818.

Can you help with this problem?
