I am using KDE 3.5.9, digiKam 0.9.3 (final) on Kubuntu 8.10.
I can reproduce this bug, so it appears to be not fixed.
How do I reproduce:
image a.jpg is available
add a tag to a.jpg
add a geolocation to a.jpg
close digiKam, rename a.jpg to b.jpg, open digiKam
--> digiKam complains about missing file on startup, tag on
b.jpg is missing, but geolocation is still available
leave digiKam open, rename (on the filesystem, mv command)
a.jpg to b.jpg, switch focus to digiKam (nothing happened),
press F5 to refresh.
--> tag on b.jpg is missing, but geolocation is still available
There is something "special" to my setup: the image repository
is on a NTFS disk:
# mount | grep Bilder
/dev/sda9 on /media/Bilder type fuseblk (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,noatime,allow_other,blksize=4096)
Question: how may it be possible to "move" my image collection
later (let's say I buy a new computer), i.e. how do I "export"
all the DB contents, modify pathes etc. on the export dump, then
reimport it back to another installation? (I.e. I am afraid of
long time archiving data loss)
