Guru Meditation Error? - Here's one fix!

  • If you get a Guru Meditation Error, here is one potential cause - invalid XML.

    It seems that the XML is not propertly escaped, so if you have a book with an "&" symbol in it, it will generate invalid XML and you will get an error next time you open the app.

    To check:

    1. Once you get the error, open dslibris.xml in Internet Explorer.
    2. If it is valid, you should just see a list of your books
    3. If it is invalid, you should get an error, hopefully pointing you in the right direction (eg; Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows)

    TO FIX - just rename all occurances of '&' to 'and' and you're sorted!

    This won't fix all errors, but it did help me.

  • It actually works. But if it not works, try to change the names of the XHTML files and only have text in it and not symbols from your own language. The easiest thing is to only have english letters in the file name. That will say, only these

  • Remember to delete the XML folder after and it writes it again with the new names…
