Mosquitto not running under 159

I created a fresh install and thanks to Dan’s timely work (, was able to install Mosquitto. However, it does not run and this has been flagged up on the thread above. An attempt to start it manually, with mosquitto -v results in ‘Illegal Instruction’. Attempting to start the service results in:

Dec 16 14:28:43 BPS systemd[1]: mosquitto.service: Failed with result ‘signal’.
Dec 16 14:28:43 BPS systemd[1]: mosquitto.service: Service hold-off time over, scheduling restart.
Dec 16 14:28:43 BPS systemd[1]: Stopped Mosquitto MQTT Broker.
Dec 16 14:28:43 BPS systemd[1]: Started Mosquitto MQTT Broker.

netstat -a shows no port open (1883)

Any thoughts?

Thanks :slight_smile:

I had the same on an RPi 2 (arm6) so I switched to an RPi3 (arm7). However the DietPi scripts also try to install the wrong .deb file/version. So multiple discrepancies are faced.
On the RPi2 I only could get Mosquitto working when compiling it from the sources (which is easy to do).

After using the .deb I could successfully use mosquitto. Unfortunately DietPi has no clue that this is installed.

Hopefully both, the DietPi and Mosquitto folks soon wil find a solution.


EDIT After looking at the DietPi scripts, I think there is nothing wrong with it and both discrepancies are due to the somewhat badly maintained mosquitto repository.
