Description Artem S. Tashkinov 2009-05-05 06:00:39 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs

Recently my Akregator hang for no obvious reasons I could only kill it via -KILL signal.

Right now one my feeds files is broken to the point Akregator 100% hangs when I try to run it. There are no tools for feed data files recovery, as such I strongly suggest switching to SQLite backend.

I can provide you a feed file in question (it's actually three files).

This bug status is not CRASH but the application is totally unusable.

One of broken feeds

For two feeds I've lost 99.99% of past articles - they are either garbage or empty having 1970-01-01 05:00 date.
Comment 2 Artem S. Tashkinov 2009-05-05 06:29:04 UTC
Actually I've got as many as six feeds lost. Their respective data files are all broken - almost all articles are lost. :(

The issues with metakit storage will be history when we switch to using Akonadi, which will hopefully happen for 4.4.
Comment 4 Artem S. Tashkinov 2009-05-06 06:25:16 UTC
Is there currently a way to recover broken articles files? It seems like when I delete those broken articles Akregator does nothing and at each new start it shows them again (not to mention it takes over 5 minutes to start with 100% CPU usage).
Comment 5 Frank Osterfeld 2009-05-14 12:16:56 UTC
no, one has to delete/move the broken files (or just all of them) from ~/.kde/share/apps/akregator/Archive
