This issue occurs when I use digikam 4.14.0
I have made many changes too the tags, but when I attempt to sync the files too the database thats when things get complicated. The program takes up quite abit of resources causing my music in the background to shudder. Then after a few minutes it crashes. I have all of my images and the OS on a SSD, I setup a KDE version of OpenSuse for the sole purpose of running Digikam after I had limited success with Ubuntu and there latest version which is 4.10.0
I have exiv2 0.25-2.3 installed and is more recent then what is suggested by https://www.digikam.org/node/177 which is 0.11 with .14 highly recommended.
Unfortunately that has not help solve my issue. This is the error message I get if I run digikam from the terminal.
