    I have watchdog running, so it keeps trying to restart, but I get the same error. Visually, I see several modules load each time, but then it crashes.



  • @salbee how did u get to 2.11? install or upgrade?

    how did u install or upgrade



  • @sdetweil it was an upgrade



  • @salbee how did u upgrade? pull, & npm install?

    also need to do npm install in every module folder that has a package.json file

    for future upgrades use the new upgrade script
    see https://github.com/sdetweil/MagicMirror_scripts

    also, how did you do that start after uograde? npm start or use pm2?

    if pm2, there might be something in the logs

    pm2 logs --lines=100
    


  • @sdetweil After much troubleshooting, I’ve narrowed the problem down to only occur when I have screen rotation turned on (in the /boot/config.txt file). Changing the rotation approach to use the custom.css file instead, the problem has gone away.



  • @salbee glad u found it…
