Ok, that all looks good.
Hardlinks are created by using ln without -s. You can hardlink to files on the same partition iirc.

Oh, I see, thanks for clarifying this.

You did erase your songs.db at a certain point, right?
Maybe there are zombie’d entries left in there that cause firefly to try to scan those files?

Erase songs.db (or songs3.db) , set the mp3_dir to sda9 only and then start up firefly.

Yes, I was erasing both songs3.db and songs3(something)journal each time I was starting the test again.

However, I decided to delete all the broken symbolic links… after this, it worked.

But clearly something on sda9 seems to throw firefly off.

You got that right. Here’s what happened: I took a better look at all the symbolic links in /media/sda9 and found a really broken one (I don’t know how it actually got there in the first place)…

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1 2007-11-11 11:45 /media/sda9/backup/b4gg/root/.wine/dosdevices/z: -> /

Some weird backup of the entire /root home directory before some old, forgotten install.

So I uhm am sorry for all the trouble, it works alright… Thanks for the feedback and for taking the time to debug me.

This is embarrassing. 😛
