Vienna 3.5.8 fails to start on MacOs 10.15.7

Post by paulrh »

First, I've been happily using Vienna as my RSS viewer for many years and am very grateful for the work put into it!

After the MacOS 10.15.7 update, Vienna will no longer start up - no windows open but the app seems to begin starting.

I've no idea where to check for any logs (nothing found in Apple's Console app). If there's anywhere or anything I can do to track what's happening, I can.

Many thanks
Paul.

I ran the actual Vienna binary (/Applications/Vienna.app/Contents/MacOS/Vienna) from the commandline and got messages:

2020-10-18 09:40:05.507 Vienna[2564:64808] DB Error: 11 "database disk image is malformed"
2020-10-18 09:40:05.507 Vienna[2564:64808] DB Query: select version from info

2020-10-18 09:40:05.508 Vienna[2564:64808] DB Path: /Users/xxx/Library/Application Support/Vienna/messages.db

Luckily, I had a messages.db.bak from a previous DB update, so removed the current messages.db and renamed the backup. Restarted the app, got the message to update the DB, confirmed and all working again.

So, DB corrupted somehow but now ok.

Problem solved.

According to your report, you are on 3.5.9.

Can you verify if the problem occurs with 3.5.8 ? It might be related to a recent change.

Thank you. I can confirm that downgrading to 3.5.8 helped and so far no crashes have occurred.
