Description Drunkard Zhang 2012-09-04 14:52:27 UTC
aMule won't start with empty ~/.aMule/statistics.dat file, this should be upstream bug. Just remove ~/.aMule/statistics.dat to workaround.

Reproduce: Always.
21:43:37 ~/.aMule $ amule
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gnomesegvhandler"
 2012-09-04 21:43:42: Initialising aMule 2.3.1 compiled with wxGTK2 v2.8.12
 2012-09-04 21:43:42: Checking if there is an instance already running...
 2012-09-04 21:43:42: No other instances are running.
 2012-09-04 21:43:42: ListenSocket: Ok.

 2012-09-04 21:43:43: Loading PartFile 1 of 32
 2012-09-04 21:43:43: Loading PartFile 2 of 32

...., All OK. Now destroy it:
21:44:10 ~/.aMule $ mv statistics.dat /tmp/
‘statistics.dat’ -> ‘/tmp/statistics.dat’
removed ‘statistics.dat’
21:44:16 ~/.aMule $ touch statistics.dat
21:44:22 ~/.aMule $ amule

Use 'strace -e trace=open /usr/bin/amule' can identify files caused the problem.
Why there's empty statistics.dat?
