Fatal ExceptionStarting RC 3.5

Postby drdavid » Fri Feb 14, 2014 6:33 am

Hi--

I just downloaded and installed RC 3.5. When I clicked on Run, the splash screen appeared to be loading normally, then I got an alert window:

Fatal Exception
Sqlite error: attempt to write a readonly database received from INSERT OR REPLACE INTO stat_cache (path, stamp) VALUES (?,?)


When I clicked on the alert "Okay" button, it forced closed FG.

To test what might be in the console, I enabled it:

Enabling ATI viewport hack
Sqlite error: attempt to write a readonly database received from INSERT OR REPLACE INTO stat_cache (path, stamp) VALUES (?,?)


This time, when I clicked on Okay, FG Run was closed, but the rest od FG was still open and functional.

My OS:
Code: Select all
Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit
CPU
   Intel Core i7 @ 2.40GHz
   Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology

Micro-Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz

RAM
   12.0 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
Graphics
   Generic PnP Monitor (1920x1080@59Hz)
   Intel HD Graphics 4000
   NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M 1G (Default)
     HD Monitor:  LG E2341 Flatron
Hard Drives
   932GB Hitachi HTS541010A9E680 (SATA)
        HD-2: Toshiba Automatic Backup Portable Drive, 1TB




Any ideas?

Regards
drdavid

your $FG_HOME must be writeable by FlightGear, that's where it keeps its configuration files: http://wiki.flightgear.org/$FG_HOME
The error message suggests that your navdata cache isn't writeable: http://wiki.flightgear.org/Navdata_Cache
If the directory is writeable, it's probably a problem with the SQL DB itself - to check that, just rename/delete those navcache files, which will trigger a fresh rebuild.
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,

Hi-- I found the navdata cache files. There were three. I deleted an one and renamed the 3.0 file. FG wrote a new navdata cache. When I clicked on Run I got a crash report (which I submitted). Then it stuck me I could export the crash report using 7-zip. Here's the xml version:

Code: Select all
<CrashRpt version="1402">

    </CustomProps>
    <FileList>
        <FileItem name="crashdump.dmp" description="Crash Minidump" />
        <FileItem name="crashrpt.xml" description="Crash Description XML" />
    </FileList>
</CrashRpt>


Don't know if this helps. Do I just need to delete the other old navdata cache still in the folder?

@hooray--

Please note the comment posted above this.

Having no success today at getting RC3.5 to run, I did a full uninstall (that included uninstalling RC3.4 to make sure I had no file cross-contamination), reinstalled 3.5, then checked the navdata cache again. Still getting the crash code.

Mostly bummed out. :cry:

After doing a thorough uninstall and cleaning out of all the old files from previous installs, I am now able to access RC 3.5. :D

Hi, I am also using FlightGear on Windows and I also have this error from time to time. It always takes me an hour of reading forum messages, wiki entries, etc... until I remember what I did the last time.
So, as an reminder to myself:

1. Stop Flightgear,
2. Open the Windows Explorer
3. Delete the following directory (if your user name is barry): C:\Users\barry\AppData\Roaming\flightgear.org
4. Start Flightgear again.

Regards,
Barry Ballantines
