If you're using FreeAccountingSoftware (If you're running a fairly straight-forward operation then I'd suggest checking it out) and you get this error message when trying to retrieve SBR Activity Statements:

Error, CMN.ATO.AS.EM137, There are no activity statements matching your selection. Change your criteria.,

Then your issue might be an incorrect "Branch" code in your SBR Settings.

Ardour is an amazing piece of software, but sometimes it still crashes. This is not entirely its own fault - plugins have to run in the same process so ultimately Ardour has no control over some of the code it ends up running.

The best method I've found thus far (although it still does that lockup thing from time to time) is:

Running mysqld from the command line (with sudo -u mysql mysqld -v) also gave nothing useful.

Finally I found a suggestion to run:

sudo -u mysql mysqld_safe --log-error=/tmp/mysql.log
