You'll need the sqlite3 package to open it.  There are graphical SQLite

Ok, there are 5411 entries in phototable.  All paths point into my
~/Pictures directory.  However, 1678 of these files don't exist
anymore.  Is that a problem for Shotwell?


You might consider making a backup of the file first, just in case.

I still think this is due to Shotwell traversing your Pictures 
directory at startup.  One more thing you might try, from the console:

$ find ~/Pictures -lname "*"

This will print all symbolic links in your Pictures directory.

As many as there were hidden files, about 100.  I deleted the hidden
files (which were residues of my earlier usage of OSX).  Now, I only 
the fist to messages and nothing else afterwards.  Still 100% CPU

 Do you have metadata writing turned on?

Just checked: no.

 Where are your photos located?

All photos are in ~/Pictures and it's sub-directories.

 Are they on your local disk, or are > they on a USB drive, network
 storage, etc.?

They should all be on the local disk.  Can I get a list of all entries
From the database?  Then I could check whether there are any strange

I also switched off all plugins to see if one of them causes the 
but that didn't help.
