Dietpi-services reporting error starting cron

Post by beko »

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 : syncthing
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : netdata
[ OK ] DietPi-Services | start : cron
cron: can't lock /var/run/crond.pid, otherpid may be 16760: Resource temporarily unavailable
Cannot find device "0"
Cannot find device "SCHED_OTHER"
Cannot find device "0-3"
Cannot find device "0"
/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.

@beko
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

Hello
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
