'Unable to connect to YACReaderLibrary' error 5 years 2 months ago #1763

Hello...taking the Reader and Library for a spin. My initial impression has been good--well thought out interface and features--but I'm running into a blocking issue.

When I first tested adding and creating a library, double clicking in the ReaderLibrary correctly opened the reader. I continued updating my library and decided to stop to see how things were progressing about halfway through. Unfortunately, I can no longer go from the ReaderLibrary to the Reader. I get this 'Unable to connect to YASReaderLibrary' error from the Reader:



Is there a workaround for this? I'm using version 8.0.0 for OSX.

The library points to files on a remote volume (NAS). I can read the files correctly if I open directly from the Reader.

Also, is there information that details the way the library handles data? For instance, where is the library data stored?

Thanks.

The library data is stored in the folder where you created your library. There is a hidden folder named .yacreaderlibrary that contains all that YACReaderLibrary needs.

Can you create a sample library in your hard drive and test there YACReaderLibrary and YACReader? Just for discarting any issues related to the NAS.

A local test worked, but I found that a smaller remote test on the NAS worked as well.

Is there a cap on what would be considered a reasonable size for .yaslibrary reader folder and/or library.ydb file?

Edit: Seems like it is definitely size-related. Broke the library into smaller bite-sized chinks and it works. Not sure about the threshold.

No, there is no limit in libraries size.

How are you mounting your NAS in your Mac?

Hi,

I am getting this error on my large libraries 49K and 36k, but works fine on all smaller libraries. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Open a terminal and browse to any of those large libraries, then do "cd .yacreaderlibrary", notice the file "library.ydb", zip it and send it to me, please.

Hmmm, that library looks surprisingly small, it only has a bunch of folders and comics. I don't see those thousands of comics. Could it be that the library is corrupted? Did you try to recreate those large libraries?

Having the same problems. I tried everything (even changed network infrastructure to a faster wifi) nothing worked wit my large library. but it does when I am on windows. so there is a "problem" with the Mac Version of the library. it is definitely not working as expected. I wouldn't blame apple for that. it is a different OS and as such it might need a dedicated approach to get YAC running properly.
I am posting this after 4 years of the initial post if I am not wrong. so this behavior is known for at least 4 years now and my feeling is that nothing has changed since. that's sad because YAC is such a great app in general. wish it would run on Mac the same smooth way as it does on Windows.
