Raspberry pi installation problems

Post by unholymachine » 29 Jun 2017, 18:39


I followed the guide @ http://erpxe.org/Raspberry_Pi_installation_instructions but unfortunately when I get to the part where I use the command "service tftpd-hpa restart" the I get the error:

Code: Select all

Job for tftpd-hpa.service failed. See 'systemctl status tftpd-hpa.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
systemctl status tftpd-hpa.service returns :

Code: Select all

tftpd-hpa.service - LSB: HPA's tftp server
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/tftpd-hpa)
   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Thu 2017-06-29 12:33:32 EDT; 55s ago
  Process: 2268 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/tftpd-hpa stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
  Process: 6969 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/tftpd-hpa start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
and journalctl -xn returns:

Code: Select all

No journal files were found.
My installation process follows the wiki entry to the letter. I've even thought that maybe I should execute "update-rc.d tftpd-hpa defaults" right after editing "/etc/default/tftpd-hpa" (which is kind of not in order with the wiki) but it does not fix the issue. Can anyone help?

can you post the log files when you try and start the service?
usually tftpd logs to /var/log/messages

i believe you'll find the solution there.
most likely it is a faulty config since the wiki doc is quite old and you are probably using a newer version
