Since installing fedora 34 and, with it, audacity 3.0.2, I’m having some strange problems.
Worst of all, when I just tried to save and then reopen a new project it turned out to be empty. No dialogue about file recoveries at all, just plain emptyness. I tried opening an older (.aup) project and it too was empty.
It seems like audacity saves everything including audio tracks in a single .aup3 file with the new version. For the emptied project I notice that this file is suspiciously small, about 300 kB instead of hundreds of mb as it would be with all audio properly stored.
I should add that saving projects and opening them worked for a short while before not working anymore. Is there any other information that might be helpful while I wait for a more stable release?
As for drive, I don’t know if I understand the question. The projects are stored on my computer, same diskspace I use for most things.
Some more details about what’s going on:
When I create a new .aup3 project it seems to save everything and the file size is appropriately big. Then when I close and reopen the file it turns out to be empty, meaning the tracks are blank but the track names are still there. Next, when I close the project again the file size plummets to just a few hundred kb.
I had the same problem with either the audacity package or the audacity-freeworld one (from rpm-fusion). However, I could successfully open and edit the project with the Flatpak package (from Flathub) It seems that the project is properly saved but cannot be opened for some reason.
Same problem here.
My project has a stereo track with audio from an imported mp3 and a mono generated track. I saved the project but when I reopen it I have my 2 tracks (stereo + mono) empty.
My fs is ext4.
Launched from terminal I can’t find any relevant.
Nor an error or warning is issued by the program.
