    Default A couple of quick Amarok questions

    Hey all,

    When I start my machine, Amarok starts up and starts running a network scan.

    How do I stop Amarok from doing automatic scans? I would to do it manually.

    How I stop Amarok from starting up with my OS?

    I think that Amarok might continuously looking for my Ipod, I don't know for sure on this one.

    Don't really know my way around Amarok, but I finally did figure out how to connect my Ipod to it.


    Thanks

    Two parts to this answer. First, you can select which directories get
    scanned (Amarok, settings, configure amarok, collection) so you could
    de-select your network directories. Or, second, you could just de-select
    scanning altogether by unchecking watch folders for changes.

    I looked in both, nothing there, so I just removed it all together.

    Thanks, caf.
