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.

-Paul

Any instructions on where to do this? Cant find any pointers on this...

Simply rename the old symbolic link using the:

mv oldFileName newFileName

command then create a new symbolic link using this command:

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

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.
