    I am running ubuntu 11.10 with lives I was using Lives to assemble 170,000
    jpgs together to make a timelapse video, during the loading phase my drive
    filled and stopped running however lives saved a copy of the clip set now when
    i start lives it hangs trying to load the clip set.

    so far i have tried:-

    Leaving it for a day to see if it will get somewhere so that i can tell it not
    to bother / delete the clipset.

    un-mounting the drive with the jpgs in it and deleting any file called
    timelapse

    un-installing and purging Lives and all its config data. but it still gets to
    the end of the load process and says "Autoloading set timelapse"

    Please Help......

    Either start LiVES with:

    lives -noset

    or edit the .lives file in your home directory and remove the ar_clipset
    entry.
