• Re: Mystic A47 Release Date?

    Hmm, maybe some fortune telling by g00r00, the last line of whatsnew. for the latest A47 pre-alpha reads:
    <ALPHA 1.12 A47 RELEASED -- July 18, 2021>
    Ok, so July 18th came and went. There's a new pre-alpha released today which now reads:
    <ALPHA 1.12 A47 RELEASED -- July 24, 2021>
    *fingers crossed* :)

    Warpslide how is yours working so far? I'm on the Alpha release now and all seems to be working like a champ, other then the fact that I get a poll.bsy every time I poll the FTN's I subscribe to. Not sure if this is an RPI thing, but once a day I kill the poll.bsy and then am able to send/receive mail fine. I'll likely just start using my .sh script again to pause between system polls, process mail, and killbusy before and after within the script; unless you're also having/had the issue and solved it?

    -tG

    ... Operator, give me the number for 911

    I'm also still killing a poll.bsy every now and again - prolly once a day, but I only catch it every other or so... wtf. :P

    on raspberry pi here too.

    I'm on a Pi as well & mine seems to be working ok. I've not actually had this problem happen to me before so I'm not really sure what causes it.

    I poll for Fido (3 hubs), fsx, micro & metro and then dove w/ qwkpoll and it just kind of zips through the process. I do reboot nightly after shutting Mystic down properly to back up the bbs directory, not sure if that is what's helping me?

    ** nighboot.sh **
    #!/bin/bash
    export mysticbbs=/home/pi/mystic
    cd /home/pi/mystic
    ./mis shutdown
    sleep 10
    ./mis poll killbusy all

    mount -t cifs -o user=bbs,pass= //nas/Data /mnt/nas
    mv /tmp/nrbbs-`date +%F`.tar.7z /mnt/nas/Jay\ Backups/BBS/
    umount /mnt/nas
    rmdir /mnt/nas
    shutdown -r now "Nightly Maintenance"

    ** main.ini **
    PurgeMessageBases = true
    PackMessageBases = true
    PackFileBases = true
    FileSort = true
    LinkMessages = true
    PurgeUserBase = true
    PackUserBase = true


    My only other thought may be a misbehaving bink hub that those with the issue are connecting to that I'm not that causes Mystic to crash?

    ... Take my advice, I don't use it anyway.

    Decent event, here...

    I enjoy seeing what other ops use to make ISH run well... thanks.

    Are you using a looping script to start Mystic and keep it running? At present I haven't been having issues with poll.bsy on my Pi or Linux/64 with A47.
    I'll need to update today hopefully to the release now that it's out.

    ... I love BBSing: All the social dynamics of pre-school!

    I've just been loading with a ./mis daemon recently, as I had some issues while using screen/tmux. (Later figured out it was just the terminal environment color settings, but...) Just loading in simple daemon mode now.
