So I run msieve -s test.dat -l test.log -i test.ini -nf test.fb -t 4 -nc2 again and: Code: commencing linear algebra read 3880716 cycles cycles contain 12919660 unique relations read 0 relations error: cannot locate relation 44290431 Oh. And it wipes the test.dat.mat file for good measure. Luckily I'd made a backup of everything first. Then I see there are TWO checkpoint files, test.dat.chk and test.dat.bak.chk. So I try using the second checkpoint file and get the same error. Is there anything I can do to rescue the process at this point without running the entire linear algebra step again?
