Dietpi-services reporting error starting cron

Hi team,

I’m running Dietpi 6.9 on Odroid C2 - Thanks for providing this wonderful piece of software.

Since some time (can’t quire remember since when) I’m getting the following error:

[ SUB1 ] DietPi-Services > start
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : php5-fpm
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : nginx
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : plexpy
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : plexmediaserver

[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : netdata
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : cron
cron: can’t lock /var/run/, otherpid may be 16760: Resource temporarily unavailable

/DietPi/dietpi/.dietpi-process_tool: line 3: dropbear: command not found
[ SUB2 ] DietPi-Process_tool > Apply
[ OK ] DietPi-Process_tool | Completed

Any idea what might be the problem, where it came from and how to fix it?

Thanks for your support.

We changes the style of the process tool config file. In some cases the patch to update/reset this file doesn’t apply as expected.

Please try to remove the file manually. It will be recreated on next script execution:
rm /DietPi/dietpi/.dietpi-process_tool

If you applied some process adjustments, you need to reapply them: dietpi-process_tool

For some reson cron could not execute sbin/mgrctl -m core problems.autosolve
Run the command manually and show us the result.

If this doesnt help, execute
killall core and then sbin/mgrctl -m core problems.autosolve

Sorry, but I can’t find any command named mgrctl. Where would that command be located?

Anyway, removing /DietPi/dietpi/.dietpi-process_tool manually solved the problem.
Thanks for your superb support.

Cheers, mates
