    Hi,
    I have not used my Gramp for a while (4-5 years), and I just recently upgraded to version 3.4.9.
    Since the update, I receive this error message:
    Cannot open database – (-30974, ‘DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery — process-private: unable to find environment’)
    The message also suggests that I should downgrade to an earlier version and export my data to xml.
    Please send me some info, which version should I install, and where can I download it from.
    Thank you.
    Zoltan
