Console/system log error: "Error calling sqlite3_step (1: cannot commit - no transaction is active)"

Recommended Posts

Been running my Hack Mini for a while -- it's based pretty closely off Tony's CustoMac Mini 2012 build (GA-Z77N-WIFI, 3570k i5, Seagate Barracuda 2Tb, 8Gb Corsair, 660Ti). Everything's great (except for the iMessage issue right now, but can't help that.)


In the Console and System log, I get this repeating error every 6 seconds or so. It looks like this:


Jan 8 21:40:00 tetraodontidae2 SystemUIServer[917]: DB Query: COMMIT TRANSACTION;
Jan 8 21:40:06 tetraodontidae2 SystemUIServer[917]: Unknown error calling sqlite3_step (11: database disk image is malformed) eu
Jan 8 21:40:06 tetraodontidae2 SystemUIServer[917]: DB Query: BEGIN EXCLUSIVE TRANSACTION;
Jan 8 21:40:06 tetraodontidae2 SystemUIServer[917]: Error calling sqlite3_step (1: cannot commit - no transaction is active)


(tetraodontidae2 is my machine name of course). I googled and searched here and found nothing at all relevant.


Booted in safe mode using the -x flag; tried booting off a USB drive and fixing permissions and doing a surface integrity scan in Disk Utility -- none of them fixed the problem.

    • the slowness is most likely IM's host provider. we used to use ONE.com but they sucked and it was super slow so we switched and things definitely got better on the slowness front
    • Remove the THB_C cable and try this: SSDT-TB3 Z270.aml Remember though, the method without THB_C works only if a device is connected and turned on before boot, otherwise the PCI-TB card is not loaded by the system (and you do not see it on ioreg). In my case it works because my TB Dock is always on. To succeed try these steps:
      1- enable Fix Shutdown in Clover
      2- turn off the computer
      3- Connect the TB device and switch it on
      4- wait few seconds and turn on the computer Obviously if you do not have a dock like me you have two choices:
      - Use the SSDT V1 or V2 and deactivate the sleep if you are having problems
      - Wait for new developments     @Loloflat6 Apart this bad luck, you're still lucky, the TBEX is the only TB card (at least until now) that is recognized naturally by the system even without a THB_C cable o device connected at boot

    • @ivik Which OSX version do you use on the HP Compaq 8710w?
    • @MacPeet Sound is greyed, no devices is syspref. There are some assertions in console, not sure if they were before. Sysinfo now doesn't have line line-in which is OK, it is maybe connected to dock.  alcdbg.tiff ioreg.tiff sndAssert.tiff sysinfo.tiff
