The LottaNZB configuration could not be loaded

Asked by Majestic on 2008-03-29

I am getting the following error when I try to start lottanzb from Terminal

INFO Starting LottaNZB 0.2-pre using Python 2.5.1.
INFO The LottaNZB configuration could not be loaded. Starting configuration assistant.
INFO Created the LottaNZB directory /home/raymond/.lottanzb/.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any idea what is going wrong.

Hi Majestic,

this means that you're launching LottaNZB for the first time and haven't completed the first-run asisstant yet, which creates the LottaNZB configuration file in ~/.lottanzb.

To track down the odd segmentation fault, you can make a backtrace using gdb. First, simply install the "gdb" package. cd into the LottaNZB source dir and run "gdb python". Type "r" and wait for LottaNZB to crash (you might need to hit enter several times). As soon as it has crashed, type "bt" to make a backtrace.

Hope this works.
