A couple of years ago I reinstalled my computer with openSUSE Leap 15.2, and more recently I installed gramps 5.1.3. It finds a BSDDB database, but when I try to open it, it says (Yuck, I can’t copy it and have to retype by hand!)
The Family Tree you are trying to load is in the Bsddb version (5, 3, 28) format. This version of Gramps uses Bsddb version (4, 8, 30). So you are trying to load data created in a newer format into an older program, and this is bound to fail.
You should start your newer version of Gramps and make a backup of your Family Tree. You can then import this backup into this version of Gramps.
I don’t believe this. The current version of Gramps is 5.1.4, which wasn’t released when I last touched the family tree database (2018). I think it wants an older version of Gramps, even though the bsddb version number appears newer.
Can anyone tell me which version of Gramps will read this database, and where I can get an installable copy?
