Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] no fun with rhytmbox

What version of rhythmbox are you using?  Using a old (especially

Just: "mv ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/ my-old-rhythmbox-config" or somesuch.

Obviously that's an easy fix, but of course it's not something you'd
want to expect average users to know how to do.  And it's not really
ideal, either.  If you acknowledge that migrating config files between
releases is usually going to be a problem, then presumably rhythmbox
ought to detect what version the config files were for at startup, and
give the user the option of upgrading them.
