[done] Moving from Debian 7 to Devuan 2

Hi there!

Because Debian 7 is „out of LTS“ I am moving from Debian 7 to Devuan 2.

Now I would like my „new“ rhythmbox to behave like my old did. I don't want to rate every song again.

Is it possible to „convert“ the respective files? Hm, *are* there any files I could use to prevent me from doiing all the things I did in my old rhythmbox?

Thanks in advance!

Gregor

Hi, Gregor. I don't use rhythmbox but can imagine that it keeps all your personal settings (including song ratings) somewhere in your home folder. Look for a folder such as /home/gregor/.rhythmbox or /home/gregor/.config/rhythmbox.

If you upgrade without wiping your home folder, rhythmbox should behave as before without any intervention from you. Nevertheless, I'd copy the rhythmbox config folder to a flashdrive just in case.

Shame on me. I should have tried this before posting.

Now I have all the "ratings" back. Rebuilding my mostly automated playlists shouldn't be a big job.

Thanks a lot!
