restart loop without error



  • Hi,

    Have restart loop with MM v2.9.0.
    Running RPi3:

    Linux magicpi 4.19.66-v7+ #1253 SMP Thu Aug 15 11:49:46 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux
    

    Logs show nothing special:

    Versions as below:

    pi@magicpi:~/MagicMirror $ node -v
    v10.18.0
    pi@magicpi:~/MagicMirror $ npm -v
    6.13.4
    

    How to troubleshoot ? Where / how to look for error?
    Tried with sample config.js bu ended same way, with reboot loop…



  • @efevee pm2 will restart the app if it terminates, so

    do this

    pm2 stop 0
    

    then

    cd ~/MagicMirror
    npm start
    

    report any errors



  • I/m over SSH, having RPi connected to HDMI monitor so I ran as below.
    Ended with command line prompt, no change on display… MM didn’t run.

    pi@magicpi:~/MagicMirror $ DISPLAY=:0 npm start
    
    > magicmirror@2.9.0 start /home/pi/MagicMirror
    > sh run-start.sh

  • @efevee interesting… new behavior…

    how did you install? manually or one of the install scripts?



  • Official RPi script, however some time ago (two or three MM versions ago)
    From “strange” tweaks I only have only log2ram to extend SD card life:

    card is not full…

    after the git pull, did u do npm install? and for any modules that have a package.json, do the same in each such module folder (the update script mentioned below does this all for you)

    are u willing to try to update to the latest ? (2.9.0) with the new update script
    see here https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/10859/new-update-upgrade-script-ready-for-testing

    because u have already attempted update, u will need to add force as a parameter on the end of the url
    (just like the example with apply)

    Renamed folder and tried fresh install with another script mentioned on forum but it hanged with “apt-get update” when running as pi user

    Now upgrading to Buster, however have RPi image two weeks before this behaviour started (haven’t done anything inbetween). When buster fails to fix this issue will reimage sd card and either wait till the issue happens again or will force update to refresh MM as you suggest.

    was that my new update script?

    https://forum.magicmirror.builders/topic/10171/anyone-want-to-try-updated-installer

    sometimes the apt-get update takes a while, there is a apt-get upgrade right behind it to actually update the files…
    apt-get update just updates the list of potential updates



  • Yes.
    Was suprised process takes so long especially I have it all upgraded recently:
