We recently encountered this error after a Mud crash and have been unable to figure out how to correct it so as to get the Mud up and running again. Any and all help/remedies/thoughts on this matter would be more than appreciated:

Fri Feb 21 20:08:55 2003 :: [*****] BUG: Boot_db: # not found.
You can either reply here, or email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org

Well, do you know what that error means in general?
Straight from the code (I'm assuming 1stMud is a ROM variant)...
log_string ( strArea );
for ( ; ; )
if ( fread_letter( fpArea ) != '#' )
bug( "Boot_db: # not found.", 0 );
exit( 1 );
So it's looking for a # that isn't there, on the starting line.
Do you have a backup or original of that area file somewhere?
Basically you have an incomplete area file somehow, and that's your culprit...
