  1. Someone may want to post as sticky somewhere to update NerdPack and/or python if their speedtest-cli is broken after update to unRAID 6.7. It's a simple fix and it's always good practice to update/disable plugins when upgrading the OS but I figure there will be a lot of people asking when they figure it out their scheduled speedtest is broken.
  2. It takes it a bit to start building up numbers. Did you ever have to change permissions on from the running user/group to write? I want to make sure that the developer has as much feedback as possible for troubleshooting.
  3. Let's see if it works for MMW first. I just have a hunch because I gave the user/group that runs the plugin write access to the .pid file and the next time I installed the plugin it worked perfectly after previously giving the same error.
  4. Just a thought By default, at least on my system, the file that is unavailable is root/root. If the process is trying to replace that file then it would need elevated permissions. Try chmod +w in /var/run/
  5. Thus it may need the write permission I wrote about.
  6. I know the version didn't work but I listed the steps that worked for me. If they don't work following each step then I have no idea. It worked for me in that specific order. I just did them less than 45 minutes ago.
  7. Sure, Uninstall the .plg file via the web interface under PLUGINS reinstall via the tab under PLUGINS-INSTALL PLUGIN (via direct http link) from here "" Check the PLUGINS tab again and it will show there's an update for the app, go ahead and update it. If that doesn't work I did one more thing you can try and give the group/user that runs this app write access to the file in /var/run
  8. I initially installed it via the Apps tab option. I then uninstalled it and used one of the direct links posted here and while I was reading this thread I went back to plugins tab and it showed it had an update so I updated it and it's now working flawlessly. If the remove and reinstall doesn't work I can give you an exact step-by-step on how I got it working.
  9. I updated the plugin via the menu system after installing via http link to the plg instead of through Apps. I can verify it's now working for me also. Previously it was throwing the following error. Error: pidfile "/var/run/" lock failed (Resource temporarily unavailable), exiting.
  10. I realized this is an old thread but in response to the last statement: The Windows driver I'm using has an option for static aggregation and another for dynamic link aggregation. I'm having the same problems with Dynamix also. Spotty connections, I can ping it but the web interface won't load. (thank God I got a Supermicro board with OOB-IPMI) Did anyone ever come up with a solution to the unraid side of RR?

  12. Just for sh/!s and giggles I tried this with my gigabyte board and it worked perfectly. The temperatures seem to be spot on. MB reads 25 C and CPU reads 41 C. Drives are variable between 32 C and 27 C. Btw the new WD Red drives seem to run consistently 3 to 4 degrees cooler than caviar green drives in the same cages, definitely worth the small price increase to step up to a quasi-enterprise drive product. I'm in the process of switching out all my old 2TB greens for 3TB Reds. WD has been STELLAR with their customer support and replacement of defective drives. I've only had two failures in 2 years (both greens) and they were replaced no problem (my server runs 24/7). Please refer to my signature for details of my setup. In addition I've been invited and qualified for WD beta testing of their new WD Black hybrid 3TB drives. (SSD/platter). Should be getting my first test drive soon. In summation, thank you very much for your detailed instructions to get the temperature sensors working with the new SimpleFeatures release. I really appreciate your sharing your expertise and willingness to help others get their sensors working. Now if we can just get this pissing contest between preclear and SimpleFeatures figured out, things will be SO much more user friendly. No more having to ssh to the unraid server, invoke a screen instance start the preclear and keep the antiquated unmenu to check progress of the preclear running in a screen instance.
  13. Keep up the good work on SimpleFeatures. It has been an amazing transformation in user-experience from the old unmenu interface. Plugins are simple and easy to use, you can stop the array without having to stop every running process (SAB, SB, CP) and things are just cleaner and more streamlined all the way around. I'm VERY sad to see the issues with the preclear script not being included in the latest release. It all seems pretty petty to me. Hope you can all work out your differences, however small they may be.
  14. Could someone please explain the feature "Enable background polling for spun-down disks"? I've searched the forums and no luck. What impact does it have on the drives? What information does it provide? Does it just run periodic SMART tests when the disk are spun down? Thanks in advance
