Too many open files

Post by peterd » Tue Nov 26, 2019 7:21 am

For a long time now, the last several versions at least, when I open the GUI I almost always get an error message saying that Python is needed for the search engine, but could not be found. Of course Python is installed, and when I try again it usually works.

When I start from the command line I get errors as below, along with a bunch more in a similar vein. I have a few hundred torrents, but I don't see a significant improvement if I delete a bunch of them.

I'm on 4.1.9.1, on an up to date version of Mint Cinnamon. I don't see this kind of error with any other applications.

Happy to test any suggestions.
