Dear Radim, Dear All

when I try to open a grass vector file from qgis I have this error:

error_routine (fatal = 1): Cannot find vector [email protected]

so after It qgis will crash!

It seem tell me that the vector bacino_and_strutture doesn't exist but It isn't true!! and also I haven't ask it to open this vector file, I just do a click on a GRASS vector button...

Can anyone tell me what's the problem??

I tried with various corrupted vector files but I cannot get such error. I thought
that if the vector directory is present but vector files are corrupted it could give
this error but it does not.
Maybe it was fixed in the mean time. I will close this ticket.
You can reopen the ticket if the problem persists and you can find
situation which can be reproduced.

Self-compiled QGIS from trunk (rev #6971)systematically crashes when clicking on
the "add grass vector" button:
error_routine (fatal = 1): Cannot open existing vector
<[email protected]> on level r2
Before even asking which vector. Looks like a leftover from previous
install, but I do not know what. I tried removing ~/.qgis, to no
The grass dataset does not seem corrupt, as opening it after opening a grass mapset goes smoothly.
What is strange is that it crashes before opening a vector (I do not
understand why qgis tries to open that dataset then).
if I open a mapset first, I can open the dataset without problems.
Anyway, even in case of data corruption, qgis should not crash like this.

Upgraded to critical since it causes an application crash

#4 Updated by Martin Dobias over 15 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Feedback to Closed

Fixed in 44493e20 (SVN r7300).

This problem was happening with GRASS >= 6.3 because fatal error routine in GRASS has been terminating the process (so in fact not a crash).

Tested with both GRASS 6.2 and 6.3.cvs and both work now for me.
