sqlite complains with "cannot start a transaction within a transaction"
While DT's startup, there are the attached sqlite3 error messages in the console. Basically, at some places the following two errors are triggered:
sqlite3 error: /tmp/darktable/src/iop/atrous.c:767, function init_presets(): cannot start a transaction within a transaction sqlite3 error: /tmp/darktable/src/iop/atrous.c:942, function init_presets(): database is locked
This is not introduced by a recent change. In fact, at least since March 2014 this problem exists. I could not test older revisions because of DB incompatibilities. Romoving the DB and re-importing everything solves the issue.

I also encountered "sqlite3 error: /home/lebedevri/darktable/src/iop/exposure.c:207, function init_presets(): cannot start a transaction within a transaction"
For me it happened after 3e2d49b (as a date reference, first and only time i saw that message, not bad commit)
#3 Updated by Torsten Bronger about 5 years ago
- % Done changed from 0 to 10
- Status changed from New to Confirmed
I hit the problem again. Currently, I use DT 1.7.0+1130~g9419cbc.
The affected library.db can be downloaded from http://wilson.bronger.org/library.db.bz2.
I consider this a quite serious problem: The database cannot be updated anymore, any changes only land in the XMP files, and there is no notification of this problem besides the fact that DT requests at every startup to re-import XMP files that are newer than the database. And even this only happens if you activated the check for it.
