nrec crashes right after starting it
- Open a terminal window.
- Click inside this window, type "nr" and press Enter. Carefully check, if there are any error messages in the output by scrolling up and down in the terminal window.
- If an error with the message "Wrong subdevice type." appears, it is very likely, that the nrec configuration file has been corrupted. To resolve this issue, you first have to become super-user (Administrator) by typing
suxand pressing Enter in the terminal window (pressing Enter is now always necessary after typing). Type in the administrator password. Now the input prompt should display a "#" sign at the rightmost end. Show all the recent configuration file backups by typing
ls -lart .nrec*Choose one from a point of time (yesterday?), when nrec was correctly starting up (you may identify it by the file size) and copy it to the current configuration file:
cp .nrec2008-11-11-11-11-11-111.cfg .nrec.cfgThat's all. Now you can close the terminal window and try to start nrec again.
