Error after aMule startup
« on: August 21, 2017, 10:05:55 AM »

I am using Lubuntu 17.04 with amule. It can start up, but after a few seconds I' get this error message:
../src/unix/sockunix.cpp(143): assert "m_fd != INVALID_SOCKET" failed in OnReadWaiting(): invalid socket ready for reading?
ASSERT INFO: ../src/unix/sockunix.cpp(143): assert "m_fd != INVALID_SOCKET" failed in OnReadWaiting(): invalid socket ready for reading?  BACKTRACE: [1] wxOnAssert(char const*, int, char const*, char const*, char const*) [2] g_main_context_dispatch [3] g_main_loop_run [4] gtk_main [5] wxGUIEventLoop::DoRun() [6] wxEventLoopBase::Run() [7] wxAppConsoleBase::MainLoop() [8] wxEntry(int&, wchar_t**) [9] __libc_start_main
I have tried to remove the .aMule directory in the home folder to reset the configuration. It won't help.
Are there other ways to solve the problem?

Kind regards
Pentium 4 is great

Here are some with similar problem

Some there say it is a wxGTK bug. And as you said " if any other is having the same issue, beware that if you delete the .amule directory and retry several times to start amule... it ends up working!! ". and and suggest you could have an old version of aMule. What aMule version do you have?

This thread suggest you should downgrade ;) say "you should build amule against libboost and try again"

I would try to compile it from source, see and

Or maybe try to reinstall like this 

Sorry for being so general, but as I don't have the problem it is hard to try solutions. Please tell if you find a solution!
