    I was wanting to do GPU Hardware Acceleration with a Plex Docker but unRAID doesn't appear to have the drivers for the GPUs loaded. would be nice to have the option to install the drivers so the dockers could use them.

    Well, you want one of us to go through all of the updates and pick out the ones that are important to you? Come on, give us a break. Everything in these updates is important to the various different users of Unraid for different reasons! Some are security updates. Some are updates to Samba, some address hardware issues, driver issues, incompatibilities, and some are new drivers for the latest hardware. It is easy enough to roll back if you find some issue or you can request assistance to solving the problem. But understand that waiting until some future version in the distance future may give you a lot of upgrade problems because of the small adjustments and tweaks that were detailed out as each update came out. You will have to make your own decision about about when to move up to a new version but I can assure you that keeping in the current major release version will give you the fewest problems over the long haul! (Plus, unlike other software, all updates are FREE!!!)

    In 6.6.4 release we 'reverted' the cron package back to the one that was installed with 6.5.x releases in order to solve another bug. However the way the cron daemon was started in that package is different and in 6.6.4 the problem is that crond is never started. We will publish a fix for this asap, and in meantime have taken down the 6.6.4 release. If you're running 6.6.4 you can type this command in a terminal window and put in your 'go' file as a workaround: /usr/sbin/crond -l notice

    Hello, I have some cron jobs running during the night and morning every day. None of my cron job has run over the night, upgraded to 6.6.4 yesterday. No mover, no added backup script (using User Scripts), no daily trim and no Backup / Restore from CA. cat /etc/cron.d/root # Generated docker monitoring schedule: 10 */6 * * * /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.docker.manager/scripts/dockerupdate.php check &> /dev/null # Generated system monitoring schedule: */1 * * * * /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix/scripts/monitor &> /dev/null # Generated mover schedule: 0 3 * * * /usr/local/sbin/mover |& logger # Generated plugins version check schedule: 10 */6 * * * /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.plugin.manager/scripts/plugincheck &> /dev/null # Generated Unraid OS update check schedule: 11 */6 * * * /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.plugin.manager/scripts/unraidcheck &> /dev/null # Generated ssd trim schedule: 5 4 * * * /sbin/fstrim -a -v | logger &> /dev/null # Generated system data collection schedule: */1 * * * * /usr/local/emhttp/plugins/dynamix.system.stats/scripts/sa1 1 1 &>/dev/null root@Server:/etc# cd cron.daily/ root@Server:/etc/cron.daily# v total 12 -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 76 Nov 8 00:08 fix.common.problems.sh* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 129 Apr 13 2018 logrotate* -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 76 Nov 8 00:08 user.script.start.daily.sh* root@Server:/etc/cron.daily# cd .. root@Server:/etc# cd cron.hourly/ root@Server:/etc/cron.hourly# v total 4 -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 77 Nov 8 00:08 user.script.start.hourly.sh* root@Server:/etc/cron.hourly# cd ../cron.weekly/ root@Server:/etc/cron.weekly# v total 4 -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 77 Nov 8 00:08 user.script.start.weekly.sh* root@Server:/etc/cron.weekly# cd ../cron.monthly/ root@Server:/etc/cron.monthly# v total 4 -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 78 Nov 8 00:08 user.script.start.monthly.sh* root@Server:/etc/cron.monthly# Just added my own backup script using "User Scripts" lately.

    In celebration of the Legalization of a certain recreational plant that came into effect earlier this week, I twisted one up and 6.6.3 installed very (very) smoothly.

    Personally, I prefer development on production systems. Forces me to make damn well sure that zero data loss can occur.

    Community Applications This thread is rather long (and is mostly all off-topic), and it is NOT necessary to read it in order to utilize Community Applications (CA) Just install the plugin, go to the apps tab and enjoy the freedom. If you find an issue with CA, then don't bother searching for answers in this thread as all issues (when they have surfaced) are fixed generally the same day that they are found... (But at least read the preceding post or two on the last page of the thread) - This is without question, the best supported plugin / addon in the universe - on any platform. Simple interface and easy to use, you will be able to find any of the unRaid docker or plugin applications, and also optionally gain access to the entire library of applications available on dockerHub (~50,000) To install this plugin, paste the following URL into the Plugins / Install PlugIn section: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Squidly271/community.applications/master/plugins/community.applications.plg After installation, a new tab called "Apps" will appear on your unRaid webGUI. Note All screenshots in this post are subject to change as Community Applications continues to evolve Easily search or browse applications Get full details on the application Easily reinstall previously installed applications Able to optionally search for any container from dockerHub And much, much more Buy Andrew A Beer!

    Currently unRAID uses basic auth to enter credentials for the web gui, but many password managers don't support this. Would be great if we could get a proper login page. Examples This kind of login page always works with password managers. This does not

    You're right, and I personally apologize to you, and thank you for great report. We'll get to the bottom of this asap.

    Thank our for your insightful comment! Who needs diagnostics? Who needs use cases? Who needs any simplified configs to pinpoint how this happens? I just need to search for the string "borked" in the source code! Why didn't I think of that?

    Somehow I feel you were secretly calling out to me to update the Unraid Tunables Tester. 😎 Maybe it is time.

    i am considering decrementing this in CA in favour of sickchill (rebadged sickrage), as im reasonably confident nobody really wants to use the current sickrage code (aka echel0n's) right?, anybody got any objections?, i will wait 1 week for replies, if no grumbles i will make it so.

    Ok finally I bought the disc and reproduced the issue. Looks like a Java upgrade (to version 11) fixes the issue. I will hopefully terminate and push the fix later today.

    NerdPack is fairly benign and doesn't include any packages that are present in unRAID. It's the DevPack that's the problem. I put it out there on request as a repository for compiling on a dev unRAID system not for daily use. It uses just installpkg. Going forword I think I'll strip out all the packages inherent to unRAID, include only the headers and add - headers tag to them. Something may not compile right but it won't hose the system. Basically all that is needed is the headers you guys strip out to save space for the preinstalled unRAID packages.

    Also, let's clarify this if possible. The issue tagged in this bug report, assuming the title is correct, is not with *FTP*. It is with *SFTP*. Looking at the video from @nbenis106 above, it's clear that this is about SFTP (based on the credentials used in the video). Anyway, they're completely different protocols, although often with the same desired result. FTP always worked fine for me, including on 6.6.0 and 6.6.1. It is SFTP that doesn't work on 6.6.1 for me. The comment above "Unraid doesn't have a sFTP server built-in, what are software you using?" isn't correct unless there's a distinction being made between built-in vs not built-in that I'm missing. Poking around unRAID looks like the built-in FTP server runs on vsftpd (very common). I can't see how that's related to this issue, though. cc: @bonienl @truetype

    Most people think "bitrot" refers to flaws in the physical storage media developing over time, such that data written to a storage block at time 0 is not the same data that is read at time 1, and this fact goes undetected. Indeed storage media does degrade over time, however, storage media devices also incorporate powerful error detection and correction circuitry. This makes it mathematically impossible for errors due to degrading media to NOT be detected and then not reported as "unrecoverable media error", unless there is a firmware error or other physical defect in the device. In virtually all h/w platforms, all physical data paths are protected by some kind of error detection scheme. For example, if a DMA operation is initiated to read data from RAM and write to a storage controller over PCI bus, all the various data paths are protected with extra check bits, either in parallel with parallel data paths, or using checksums. This means (again barring firmware errors), random bit errors in data leaving memory and arriving at the storage end up getting detected before ever being written to the media. There is ONE subsystem in modern PC computer systems that is typically not protected however: system RAM. If you have a file in RAM and along comes a random alpha particle (for example) and flips a bit, nothing detects this - in btrfs or zfs (for example) the s/w happily calculates an (incorrect) checksum and the h/w happily writes it all the way to the media. Until one day you read the file and see corruption and say, "Damn you crappy storage device, you have bitrot!", when all along it was written that way. If you really care about flawless storage, and indeed better system in general, you must use ECC RAM for starters. Also use quality components everywhere else, especially PSU. That will be your best defense against "bitrot".

    None of the fixes had really worked well for me. I ended up adding a 4 port usb pcie card: https://www.amazon.com/Express-SuperSpeed-Adapter-Dedicated-Channels/dp/B00HJZEA2S but I am still using a VMDK for booting ( I think I tried usb boot and never got it working right.) This setup works well for what I need. It was a bit expensive, but i can pass each port to a different vm if needed. They list a 2 port which is cheaper and shld still work fine.
