Boot problem since last DietPi upgrade


since the last upgrade to version 8.9.2 I have a problem with an RPi 4 on which Pihole is installed.
This is reflected in the fact that the boot process takes an unusually long time.
There is a TFT connected to the RPi that shows PADD.
During the long boot process, the following error message appears briefly after about 2-3 minutes:

[FAILED] Failed to start Helper to …chronize boot up for ifupdown.
[FAILED] Dependency failed for Raise network interface.

After that, the PRi starts and the Pi-hole and PADD work correctly.

Does anyone have a similar problem or can help me to solve it?

I’ll be happy to provide more information if needed, but please with instructions, I’m not a professional!

Best regards

Could you try following?

sudo apt-get remove raspberrypi-sys-mods
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-sys-mods=20220915

Thank you, that’s exactly why I love DietPi…
Great service, competent forum…

Thanks, that solved my problem.
Did I miss something on the dietpi homepage regarding the last upgrade? What was the problem or error?

Do I now have to run this on every RPi or only on Pi"s with TFT?

As part of the last update, we replaced the original raspberrypi-sys-mods package with an own one. This we did as the original package was forcing installation of tools we don’t need on DietPi. Like the raspi-config tool. DietPi/CHANGELOG.txt at 1ce1ed4f6d34072c0b720916ab08e6e0797da4e1 · MichaIng/DietPi · GitHub

It seems our package was not good enough and we missed parts that are needed for thinks like small screens attached.

Just on the one that has issues. Not needed on every RPi.

Wonderful, thanks again…

I think I found the bug in our package, please test:

cd /tmp
curl -O
dpkg -i raspberrypi-sys-mods.deb
rm raspberrypi-sys-mods.deb

Should I still do this, even though everything seems to be working correctly for me?

That would help us to verify if we found the issue on our package. :slight_smile:

Ok, gladly, but I won’t be able to give an answer until around 4:00 p.m. (GMT+2)…

Take your time, no need to rush :slight_smile:

@MichaIng, @Joulinar

Until someone claims otherwise, I’d say everything still works great.
