Not running under Ubuntu 18.04

Recommended Posts

Hi

I can't get pulseway to connect to the android app when it's running on my ubuntu 18.04 server. It worked just fine until I updated to U 18.04.
Has this occured to any one else? Is there an solution?

I'm having a similar problem after upgrading to Bionic Beaver (18.04) ... pulsewayd won't start. At first, after the upgrade, I was seeing this in the syslog:

Apr 26 19:38:34 nucleus pulseway[1006]: /usr/sbin/pulsewayd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So I downloaded the latest .deb and installed it over my existing install. pulsewayd still wouldn't start and now I'm seeing this:

Apr 26 21:19:52 nucleus pulseway[16794]: /usr/sbin/pulsewayd: symbol lookup error: /usr/sbin/pulsewayd: undefined symbol: CRYPTO_num_locks

But now when I try to start it nothing happens and nothing appears in the syslog.

Hi,

Currently the Pulseway agent doesn't support the libssl version 1.1. You will need to do the following:

  1. Uninstall the Pulseway agent.
  2. Replace libssl 1.1 with libssl 1.0.2 or older versions of libssl.
  3. And finally, re-install the Pulseway agent.

Any plans on supporting the newer libssl? This seems like the same problem that prevents Pulseway from running on my Raspberry Pi as well (link). That's been a problem since September last year and it still doesn't work. Very disappointing.

I do have libssl 1.0.2 installed, by the way:

Hi there,

You need to change the symbolic link to point to the 1.0.0 versions instead of the 1.1 versions.

Simply rename the old symbolic link using the:

Quote

mv oldFileName newFileName

command then create a new symbolic link using this command:

Quote

ln -s /path/to/file /path/to/symlink

I have two machines running bionic. On one the libraries keep re-St linking back to the 1.1 versions. Would appreciate knowledge no how to stop that happening.

Thanks

I finally got around to changing the libssl.so and libcrypto.ssl symlinks (to point to 1.0.0 versions of the files instead of 1.1) and the pulseway service started. It concerns me that maybe this could cause other security issues since I'm linking to older versions of the libraries, but I'll continue to monitor (heh) and see what happens.

I had to re-apply my symlink changes after upgrading to Ubuntu 18.10. So I'm still using the 1.0.0 versions of libssl.so and libcrypto.so to get Pulseway to run. Seems odd that switching to v1.1 wouldn't be on the roadmap.

      Hi,
      I installed Pulseway Agent on my RPI like they said on the Website. I went to the "config.xml" and entered my Username and Password. When I now go back to the Website it just showes "No systems monitored. Download and install the agent on the systems you want to monitor."
      I did everything like they said on the Website. I also googled and found out you have to install some SSL stuff, so I typed the command they said on the forum (sudo apt-get install ca-certificate)  and the Console just says, that the Package "CA-Certificate" could not be found.
      What did I do wrong?

      I hope I am in the right Subforum to ask this question.
      I recently started to use Pulseway and am impressed what I am able to do with it but I noticed one feature missing that I need.
      Is it possible with Pulseway to check Servers/Clients with log files for backups if they have been successful or failed? For example if there is a NAS connected to a network and someone is doing a USB Backup on it I want to check if it has failed so I will get a notification when it fails. I want to use it on Windows and Linux machines so my best guess is to use a script of somekind right?

      Hi,
      I think it misses the ability to monitor bandwidth on servers and users computers. It would be nice to have a history of several weeks and the services used.
