recoll indexing error while indexing Mail/


After just having installed recoll, I am getting the following error:

Quote:
Indexing failed: Failed indexing in /home/frank/.recoll/xapiandb
I have tried:
Code:
rm -fr .recoll/xapiandb
before indexing.

But this doesn't seem to help. I get this error on two different computers--both running Ubuntu 8.04.

Googling produces no answers. I seem to be the only one getting this error.

Also, setting the logfile name to /home/frank/tmp/recoll.log produces no log, no matter what log verbosity I choose. It's an empty file.

Does anyone have a clue as to what is happening here?

Thanks,
Frank

SOLVED

Running recollindex from the commandline gave meaningfull errors.

It turns out I didn't have the libimage-exiftool-perl package installed (in other words--a dependency issue).
