KOreader "No reader engine" on PW1
#1  LittleBiG 12-23-2020, 06:53 AM
The development builds after 2020.12 doesn't work for PW1. It restructures the cache, reload all cover thumbnails, then I get an error message "No reader engine for this file or invalid file" whichever book I want to open. The only solution is downgrade to the latest stable, however, no cover is shown after that.

Try with a nightly, there was a memory alignment issue in the zstd version used in the release, that was hotfixed a few hours later. It *would* unfortunately be fatal on a Kindle, given how the alignment trap is setup there .

(I checked on a K3 a few days ago, and everything behaved as it was supposed to there).

The problem first appeared with nightly 24, and it is the same even now with 30. I have a modern interface with no reader engine it seems.

PW1 is flat, so, more on that later, but 2020.12-27 worked out just fine on a K3, and -30 just fine on a PW2.

Thanks, I am looking forward to it. In the meantime I deleted my KOreader instance then copied the latest nightly to my reader. It was all the same :-(

Well, I did find a fun Kindle special bug in the process, but everything's also fine on my end on a PW1 on with -30.

I would have said try a clean install, but apparently you did, so, check the crash.log instead (in koreader/crash.log).

I'm going to need the full context, not just an excerpt.

Which FW version is your PW1 running on?
