The error is saying that xace cannot find the file that describes how
your ricegenes database was laid out on disk. You say that you
reinitialised the
database, what did you actually do ?  I'm wondering if you accidentally
deleted some of the files that acedb needs to reinitialise ?

I would suggest that you get a fresh copy of the Ricegenes database and
check that the database/ sub directory contains the file database.map.
It's because this file is missing that ultimately you are having the
above problem.

cheers Ed
