Lubuntu 13.10 -> 14.04, bsddb issues

paul womack
I just upgraded my PC OS, and was surprised to see that Gramps
is reporting a DB issue. I guess the DB is part of the underlying OS.

The report is (summary)

Family DB is in Bsddb version 5,1,29, This version
uses 5,3,28.

It then tells me to make a backup using my old version of Gramps.

Of course, I only have one-and-only version of Gramps, which I installed from source :-)

I do have my DBs on another laptop, so I'm not stuck,
but this issue was quite difficult to foresee.

(BTW, how incompatible are these two versions
of Bsddb ? )

It comes with Python 2, so if that's newer, bsddb is too.

... which you can not make, because that old version is gone. Does it
say anything else? The Gramps versions that I know (3.4 and later) offer
a bsddb version upgrade when you try to open a tree, and when I read
things right, the version numbers mentioned above go up (5.1 -> 5.3).

I have never experienced any problem upgrading bsddb versions, not even
when I copied Gramps DB files from OS-X to Linux Mint. Gramps is
designed to recognize bsddb upgrades, and handle those in a proper way,
and even creates a ZIP backup of the tree folder before the actual
upgrade is done.

What Gramps version(s) are you referring too?

regards,

Enno

Would you care to try 3.4.8? It's obvious that we recommend .gramps
backups for this, but I must admit that I only have those for my main
tree, and indeed trust on upgrades for the others.

cheers,
