proftpd failed to start

Post by kk345 »


I have been using dietpi on rpi0w and its running smoothly.

Recently i have problem with proftpd server. proftpd server is not starting. I thought I broke some files while trying different softwares.

Reinstalled dietpi and updated to latest version.

But still proftpd is failing.

Tried installing alsa but struck with error.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, "Structure needs cleaning" means a file system error/corruption.

Please first to a fsck on reboot:

Code: Select all

> /forcefsck
Check the results, either with cat /run/initramfs/fsck.log or journalctl -t systemd-fsck.

Then try to re-install alsa-utils:

Code: Select all

apt purge alsa-utils
apt install alsa-utils
And check that there are no new file system errors: dmesg -l emerg,alert,crit,err
