Waiting for conversion

in xibo 4.07(docker version) if I add to a layout a playlist with jpg images and want to publish the layout, I get the waiting for conversion error.


May your CMS tasks are not running properly.

Go to: https://yourcms.com/task/view

Check all tasks, but take a look in the Image Processing task:

Tell us what you get after this.

is active but can’t see if is properly running.
if I upload the pictures directly on the layout is working properly but if I put it in a playlist I get the pending error.
in version 3.3.9 is working ok, only from version 4.x not anymore.

something wrong with cron in the version 4 container.

As a workaround commenting the module pam_loginuid.so inside /etc/pam.d/cron and restart cron helps
I use podman

podman exec -ti CONTAINER ID bash

sed -i '/session required pam_loginuid.so/c\#session required pam_loginuid.so' /etc/pam.d/cron

this works also https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=762157

change pam_loginuid.so from required to optional in the /etc/pam.d/cron configuration

Was struggling on that for weeks (exact same symptoms and same OK versions, also using Podman)
Ping @natasha to see if that can be fixed in future releases.

I added --cap-add AUDIT_CONTROL to docker-compose.yml and for me is working


So, that only concerns Podman users and not Docker ones, from what I understood ?

I think so.
just tested and if I start podman-compose through systemd service is also working without modifications.
