Sqlite3 made Safari Crash

Short story: upgrading SQLITE3 makes Safari crash in OSX. Using Sqlite on several systems recently, I decided to upgrade the installed Sqlite on my Macbook Pro. Otherwise I kept running into version incompatibility problems between the Linux systems and my Mac. Compiling was easy enough, but by habit before I installed the new libraries, I made a backup of the current libraries. Good move. Since upgrading, I noticed that several apps started crashing on start. Safari & Ecto were the worst offenders. This morning, I finally had enough and began digging into the root cause. Aha! Sqlite3 library errors. Seems the Safari engine needs Sqlite the way it was installed. A quick rollback and Safari and my old friend Ecto are once again happy. Annoying for my cross compatibility needs, but I’ll just have to figure out how to make the old and new ones run side-by-side.


I started out going to college for Business administration but soon found out that Coding would be a great way to have a sustainable career! I made coder's eye as my personal journey on learning how to code and sharing my Findings along the way. My vision with CE now is to be a way to help beginners that want to learn code but don't know where to start.
