Fatal Error: database disk image is malformed

Asked by Shawn McCuan on 2010-10-19

Banshee has been working fine up until the past few days when it started throwing out a fatal error on startup, then closing after the dialog. I tried upgrading to the ppa version, but, I still receive the following error:

An unhandled exception was thrown: The database disk image is malformed

Linked to Bug#642934 although I am using Ubuntu 10.10 32bit with version Banshee 1.8.

Deleting ~/.config/banshee-1/banshee.db with cause banshee to rescan your library. This fixed the issue for me.

Can you help with this problem?
