Banshee Encounters a Fatal Error on launch

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello,

I got this error from Banshee when I tried to launch Banshee after a couple of system resets. I was working with software which caused my system to hang and I had to do a hard reset. Later, when I tried to open Banshee, I got the following fatal error which forced me to quit banshee. I tried restarting it and tried opening Banshee again. But even after trying a couple of times, I’m still getting this fatal error. What might have gone wrong with Banshee? Did anyone else encounter a similar problem? Can anyone help me with a fix for this? I’m using Ubuntu 11.04. I have attached a screen shot of the error message received. Thanks in advance.

Banshee Encounters a Fatal Error on launch

This is a common problem which is caused by a system crash or power outage while Banshee is running as well have maybe had another cause too. It looks like Banshee’s database has corrupted. The Banshee FAQ page containing a list of instructions that work most of the time.

To solve this problem you need to run Banshee, remove the corrupt database file. This is located at “~/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db”

Rename it & Banshee can run again. But be careful for that all your settings are lost. If you like to recover it follow this”

1. Open a terminal window & navigate to “~/.config/banshee-1 and install sqlite3: sudo apt-get install sqlite3” (without quotes)

2. Backup the file by copying “banshee. db”.

3. Open database file using “sqlite3: sqlite3 banshee.db”.

4. Do an integrity check with the command “PRAGMA integrity_check;”.

5. Now try the command “REINDEX;

If this solution doesn't work, you can recover corrupted Banshee Database. To do that, run the following command in a terminal.

$ cd ~/.config/banshee-1

$ sqlite3 banshee.db ".dump" > dump

$ mv banshee.db banshee.db.backup

$ cat dump | sqlite3 banshee.db

This will help you to make database backup & recover automatic. Then start Banshee again. If you would like to stay up-to-date on the progress, feel free to CC yourself to the Bug Report.

Hope your headache will be removed.
