db error trying to run Libreoffice after update


Noticed that LibreOffice 4.4.5 was out, so I thought I'd upgrade. I downloaded AlienBOB's prebuilt packages (libreoffice-3.4.5-x86_64-1alien.txz, libreoffice-l10n-en_GB-3.4.5-x86_64-1alien.txz, and libreoffice-mozplugin-3.4.5-x86_64-1alien.txz).

First did upgradepkg on the language pack and mozplugin, but I apparently didn't have an older version of them so I just installed. Then I did an upgradepkg on the main package and it upgraded and installed fine. But when I run any of the LibreOffice components, I get this error during the LO splash screen:

Code:
The application cannot be started. 
[/home/myusername/.libreoffice/3/user/extensions/shared/registry/com.sun.star.comp.deployment.configuration.PackageRegistryBackend/registered_packages.db] Berkeley Db error (0): Db::open: Invalid argument
Following this, it crashes. I don't really know what its saying, but I'd like to fix it without downgrading. Using 'libreoffice' in terminal doesn't do anything, and I noticed /opt doesn't have libreoffice in it (I think I remember libreoffice having a default install location of /opt)

Any help would be appreciated.

Odd. I upgraded to 3.4.5 today (32 bit). Everything seems to be working okay.

You probably upgraded from a non-alienBOB libreoffice package. The database cache is not compatible between the binaries distributed by the Document Foundation and the ones that I compile on Slackware (if anyone knows what I should do in order to make them compatible let me know).
You can delete the caches inside your ".libreoffice/3/user" directory and they will rebuild themselves.

I would show you my blog article where I explain this in more detail, but today is SOPA blackout day, so http://alien.slackbook.org/ is unavailable and you'll have to work it out yourself. Thanks, US Senate.

Actually I am updating from your package, but IIRC I compiled the previous one myself, versus using the pre-compiled one this time. But removing the caches does seem to work (actually just renaming ./libreoffice/3/user to user.old, but same effect).

Thanks

Just what I did. After deleting cache files everything works.
