Tribler (7.0.1) stopped working


#1

It worked great for about a week.
I think the problem could have been because I was using up space on my internal hard drive and it crashed.
So I freed up space but Tribler no longer starts.
When starting, it shows the spinning cogs and ‘loading…’ message but then it immediately crashes with an error report.
It won’t let me send the error report.
I click to send it but it throws up a spinny wheel (I have a Mac) and I have to force shut it down.

I noticed when I click on the Tribler icon, it looks like it starts two Tribler programs in the Force Quit Applications window.
Does that have something to do with this?

Here’s what shows up in the unexpected error window:

I deleted Tribler and reinstalled and it does the same thing:

Is there anything I can do to get it back to working?

Hi,

The error indicates that your database is corrupt. You could try to remove your database, which can be found in the state directory of Tribler. Under Linux or Mac the state (.Tribler) directory is stored in your home directory, /home/USERNAME/.Tribler (or ~/.Tribler). Note that, since it begins with a ., it will be hidden by default. Search the web to find out how to see hidden files depending on your environment ( Ubuntu / Gnome / Nautilus, Kubuntu / KDE / Dolphin / Konqueror, MacOS / Finder).

Please let me know whether removing your database helps!

Worked perfectly!!
Thank you very much.

Right before you posted, I realized that I could just switch myself as a user on the Mac and get a fresh start with Tribler there. I just put all my partial downloads in a shared folder and found my torrents corresponding to them.
So that would’ve been my solution had you not come up with this.
