I know I did this to myself, but I'm hoping there is some way to
recover without losing all my tags.
I was running f-spot 0.4.3.1 with no problems, on a Kubuntu box (Hardy)
where it is the most recent version available. Through some poor
choices of config and nfs mounts, I ran an instance of 0.6.0.0 against
the same files. Apparently it upgraded photos.db to a newer version of
sqlite3, since when I run the 0.4.3.1 version now, it complains about
the database possibly being a more recent version. (Note also that
particular message is ONLY to the console - the pop-up doesn't give any
reason for having to create a new photos.db.) Anyway - is there any
way to convert the newer version to a database that 0.4.3.1 will use?
I tried converting to a sqlite 2 database (edit the dump to remove the
sqlite_sequence and the autoincrement) but when I run f-spot against
that, it converts it to sqlite3, and then says its a more recent
version of the database anyway. Is there any hope?
Thanks for any hints or suggestions, even if it's just "start tagging
