You're not the first to report trouble with attachments on a Raspberry Pi but the problem has been elusive to reproduce. What OS are you running on the Pi, and is it 32 or 64 bit, how much installed RAM, how much swap is configured, and how did you install Citadel?

"What OS are you running on the Pi, and is it 32 or 64 bit, how much installed RAM, how much swap is configured, and how did you install Citadel?"

 

What OS...   I tried Buster, 32 bit, on a 32GB SD card, I believe the Pi has 256 MB of RAM. I did not enable any additional swap space,   I used the easy install.

I also tried an install (on the same Pi board) of Ubuntu 20.4, 32 bit on a 32GB SD card, I believe the Pi has 256 MB of RAM. I did not enable any additional swap space,   I used the easy install.

Put Ubuntu 20 on an old PC along with Citadel loaded from the easy install.  Initially I noticed the same thing.  I would get kicked out of the application about 80% of the time as soon as I posted an attachment.  I began to notice if I waited for 5 to 10 seconds after i did the attachment before closing the page and going back to the email, putting some words in the email, waiting another 5 seconds, then click send, the mail and attachment would go almost 100% of the time. 

i will go  back to the RPi and see if the same scenario plays out when putting the delays in the process.

That's a good thought. I've also got a Pi set up with a Citadel environment and I think we've got at least some part of your problem reproduced. People have reported problems with attachments on Pi before, but it's been elusive.
I always assumed it had something to do with memory management, but maybe you're onto something and it's a race condition. Will look into this more!

Just as a quick update ... so far, what I have been able to reproduce is that I get s software crash while attempting to upload large attachments on a Pi. The debugger says its crashing inside the base64-encode library. Does this sound like what you miht be experiencing? Incoming mail from the outside would be encoded somewhere else, so it wouldnt crash the library.

Size of the attachment did not make any difference.    I could reproduce it 100% of the time if I did an attachment, quickly hit close and then, again, quickly hit send.  Also, leave the document blank with no words.

All right, I found at least one bug where it was calculating an encoding buffer size incorrectly on memory-constrained systems such as raspberry pi. Now I am also seeing attachments being cut off before completion; working on that now."

Quick update: I've got a set of tests going where I can reliably get the MIME parser to produce decodes of an incorrect length when running on a Pi. Looking into it now.

Another update: the Pi bug is fixed but something went wonky and I ended up starting a big update to the build system. Soon!

Hi

I have a problem using the Citadel Easy Intall script on both Raspberry Pi4 (Raspian) and OdroidC2 (Ubuntu).  Keep getting error /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -liconv

I managed to install it previously without issues?  Any suggestions?

Ok so the location of iconv is /usr/bin/ but don't know what I need to do to get the installer to work?

Drat. We added some improvements to make it build cleanly on FreeBSD and it looks like we broke it on some Linuxes.

Hold tight and we'll get this stuff sorted out.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi, not sure if this is the right room or not, please point me to it if not.

I have a question about a feature and whether it exists in Citadel or not please:

I currently use hMailServer but the PC it is running on is falling to pieces. I have a spare Raspberry Pi so am looking at Citadel to replace hMailServer. The feature I cannot find on Citadel documentation is the "IP Address Blacklist" where I can blacklist IP addresses (or ranges of) to stop them even getting access to the SMTP side of things. Does Citadel have this please?

Thanks

Hi all,

 

Attempting to install Citadell on Centos7, looking at replacing Exchange as part of a larger architectural move.   I run into this error as soon as the Berkeley DB tries to install:

tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

I tried working around it, downloading the file and unzipping by hand, using the 'z' option on tar, etc., etc., no luck.   I tried installing a newer copy of Berkeley DB to see if the script would go passed it, it doesn't.  Running into this next with libcitadel install.

 

Seems to be an issue with the download files, or how it is passing/transforming them in the process.  Any help appreciated, thanks in advance.

Disregard.  Figured it was a 'curl' problem.  Installed and downloaded 'wget' - worked great.  Thanks, looking forward to messing with this, I like the interface.
