Snapshots since Sept. 2-3



  • Since the Sept 2nd-3rd code/boot problems, on my soekris board, full install on a hd, I am having problems with each package.  I have started out with new/fresh installs multiple times, with different iso's and then doing updates manually.
    Captive portal shows it not running, but is running and working.  Shown under services status. In system logs I ger the error:
    php: /status_services.php: The command '/usr/local/sbin/lighttpd -f /var/etc/lighty-CaptivePortal.conf' returned exit code '255', the output was '2010-09-06 14:49:49: (plugin.c.131) Cannot load plugin mod_accesslog more than once, please fix your config (we may not accept such configs in future releases 2010-09-06 14:49:49: (network.c.364) can't bind to port: 8000 Address already in use'
    I am freshly configuring this on a brand new install with nothing else loaded.

    OpenVPN shows not running under services menu, but is running, and I can connect to it.  Errors when starting from services menu:

    NUT has been added to the packages that work, yet since the problem date, I can't get the package to run.  I had it running great before, but I can't run the command outlines in the pfsense docs site, nor can I get it to give me anything other than an error of:
    Sep 6 14:21:32 php: nut: Starting service
    Sep 6 14:21:32 php: nut: Service failed to start: check configuration
    Sep 6 14:21:40 kernel: ugen0.2: <american power="" conversion="">at usbus0 (disconnected)

    Sep 6 14:22:30 php: nut: Starting service
    Sep 6 14:22:30 php: nut: Service failed to start: check configuration
    It had run fine since the last configuration before the 2nd-3rd problems. The backup unit showed up, showed the load, and worked great. Nothing on my configuration is different from prior to that date.</american></american>



  • I know there was a redmine log put in about the openVPN issue, yet the issue still remains, along with the problem with captive portal still showing stopped. I am also having problems with other packages, but this forum is about 2.0.








  • The service status has been fixed, but the first snapshot with the fix is still building.



  • Both openVPN and Captive portal?



  • Yes, the issue was related.



  • Thank you

    If you edit/save the nut settings, does it still give an error?

    Or did that problem also clear up on a new snapshot?

    I updated my home router yesterday evening and the OpenVPN status is good now.



  • It seems that nut stopped working since the September snapshots for both 32/64 bit. August it seemed to have worked fine at least in 32 bit.

    I get the same error: ERROR:      NUT is enabled, however the service is not running!
    My current build is: 2.0-BETA4  (amd64)

    And there are no other errors in the system log at all?

    I'm not sure if that is related to the snapshots or the nut package. I made some changes to the nut package a couple weeks ago but it had been working when I left it.



  • The NUT I have is working now, but I did have a lot of errors on/around the 6th.  Prior to the bad snapshots floating around, it had worked great.  As of this morning [2.0-BETA4  (i386) built on Thu Sep 9 08:11:09 EDT 2010], everything is working for me.  Still having problems with HAVP, but that's a separate issue.




  • Jimp, i am sorry, but on a fresh install, it does the error again and doesn't like the new install.  Even though the configuration is the same it still errors out with the config is incorrect.
