Amule is broken for some reason

Postby silveringking » Sat Aug 04, 2012 6:24 pm

The other day I was forced to terminate amule, since then amule doesn't work. I will write here the output, by the I am using Linux Mint 13.

Code: Select all

Reinstall it.
sudo apt-get remove --purge amule && sudo apt-get install amule

you've hopefuly fixed by now, but some-one else could run into this error

I had this error this morning, googling suggested delete the .aMule dir which seemed a bit drastic, however when I looked in that dir statistics.dat had a size of 0 bytes, so I deleted that, and it worked again. I guess the bad shutdown caused a file to get corrupt, which then caused the error on starting up.

delete
~/.aMule/muleLock
~/.aMule/ED2KLinks_lock
~/.aMule/statistics.dat
~/.aMule/emfriends.met
~/.aMule/clients.met

if exception persists, move it to another name restart amule and exit without accepting any proposed server lists.
then compare the new ~/.aMule directory with the old one you just renamed for file size
discard whatever other files in the renamed directory are 0 size
then rename the renamed amule directory back to ~/.aMule

amule should start up with your downloads and preferred servers intact
