Hi niche99 & Kovid.
I reported the same error on the wrong place (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54847 0.6.9.Linux install issue) for Linux Ubuntu. After the error Calibre is broken too.

Regards,

Hmm that error indicates a bug in sqlite as far as I can see. When the error occurs, all calibre is creating a new database file with sql dumped from the old database. In any case, if you get that error, it wont affect anything, as calibre will just throaway the new database and continue to use the old one.

EDIT: Still I'll add a workaround in the next release. Since the error doesn't happen for me, I can't test the workaround so test it and let me know.

Hi Kovidgpyal:

Thanks for fixing the "insert page breaks" bug. The long file name bug is still present, though:
(2, 'No such file or directory')

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "calibre\gui2\device.pyo", line 57, in run
File "calibre\gui2\device.pyo", line 220, in _upload_books
File "calibre\devices\prs505\driver.pyo", line 125, in upload_books
File "calibre\devices\usbms\cli.pyo", line 53, in put_file
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'M:\\Ivan Iefriemov & Kobo Abe & Rei Bredbieri & Stanislav Liem & Artur Klark & Dzhon Uindiem & Arkadii Strughatskii & Boris Strughatskii & Aiziek Azimov & Kurt Vonnieghut-\\Antologhiia - Ivan Iefriemov & Kobo Abe & Rei Bredbieri & Stanislav Liem & Artur Klark & Dzhon Uindiem & Arkadii Strughatskii & Boris Strughatskii & Aiziek Azimov & Kurt Vonnieghut-ml. .lrf'
It appears that you do crop the path a little, but it is still too long (361 chars here). It probably should be 256 chars at most. I'll test that. Any idea of when it sis gonna be fixed? Got a bunch of books I can't transfer onto my PRS-505.

Thanks,

Michael


P.S. - just tested it. 255 is the maximum path length on PRS-505. Cannot create any folders with longer length than that.

Will be fixed in next release. In the meantine you can just copy those files over manually using a file manager.

calibre quitting on me

Just downloaded calibre to my laptop: MacBook Pro 2.56 GHz running Mac OS 10.6; I was able to download the Calibre manual into calibre, then I tried to load a PDF ebook into it and it quit; just quit; I tried again after restarting calibre and it quit again. Is there a problem with calibre running in OS 10.6? I'd like to load all my ebooks I've collected so far within the last few years into calibre...

Yes - there is a very long thread about the problems with running Calibre on OS X 10.6.

Kovid, I don't know what you changed over the last couple of releases, but unmounting is now behaving normally again, even if I mount the PRS505 memory BEFORE starting calibre or AFTER.

I'd been a little busy the last few weeks, and about half that time w/o net access, so I missed all that happened, but thought that I'd leave this message that mounting seems to be working OK again.

Ubuntu 9.04 x86-64 (Intel P8600/4GB)

[EDIT]
sidenote, if what I read is what I think to be correct, Ubuntu is mounting them as USB storage devices assigning one an sdb device and th eother sdd1. (sdb is what my USB memory readers and internal card reader show up as, never seen anything mounted sdd before though... overflow maybe... I just don't bother to keep up with the low level linux kernel stuff any longer since it works fairly well now.)
[/EDIT]

In Linux Calibre mounts UMS devices with the wearing-friendly "sync" option by the way. Whatever mount program is used in Calibre should get rid of this, if that's its default behavior..

It's also user friendly in that it allows you to unplug the device without unmounting it. It will not change.

Kovid any chance of getting a pref toggle to control whether or not "recipe" downloads will automatically be transferred to a reader? Right now it defaults to sending them to the reading device as soon as it's detected.

(Or am I overlooking an option somewhere?)
