I’m having similar problems. I’m running svn-1417 on Ubuntu Dapper. The only play lists that I can get to on the SB are the ones I create with the wizard. All other playlists including smart playlists in the .playlist file are not picked up. I don’t understand why even the smart playlists are not working, I double checked the playlist file location and the corresponding “playlist = ” specification in the .conf file.
I don’t see any errors logged with debug flag on.
BTW, when I unpacked the svn-1417 tar file I noticed that the sample .playlist file was missing and so I just copied one from the svn-1359 release and modified it to fit my directory structure. Why was this file removed from the tar package ?. Is it not supported ?.
