collectd package seems to be a part of SystemDataScope application

collectd is the daemon that is used to collect all the data. Systemdatascope is mainly showing the graphs. But I wonder what's failing there on removal. Would it all work if you uninstall collectd, rrdtool and SDS?

Did you happen to end up having no network connectivity? My h4113 failed update like that. After version --dup noticed that SystemDataScope was missing. Might be coincidence as well.

@mSorvisto same, network was broken as well

@rinigus i filled https://github.com/rinigus/collectd/issues/9 with proposed solution

Thanks, makes sense. I will look into it tonight

collectd has been updated using @coderus proposed solution. The update has been released on OpenRepos and should work now. Although, it has not been tested during SFOS update in practice.

As the risk of messing up update is too large, I would recommend to uninstall SystemDataScope and collectd before doing SFOS update.

If someone wishes to test on actual update with the new version, please let me know the outcome. I will be able to test it later when my device port will get SFOS 3.3 update developed for it.

Edit: New version is released at OpenRepos - collectd-5.5.0.git_.2020.05.05. Please use that if you are on SFOS 3.3.0.x and earlier version if you are on older SFOS release.

Does this also apply to SystemMonitor? Not all of my devices broke. And I remember having the service stopped when I checked. So, on update, having the service running or not makes a diference? Just an idea...

I don't know

I was about to test upgrade from to, but I can't install update. Storeman shows newer version, but don't show install option in pulley-menu. pkcon install-local collectd-5.5.0.git_.2020.04.29-1.19.1.jolla_.armv7hl.rpm gives error "Nothing provides libgcrypt.so.11". Any tips? Tried pkcon refresh.

Tried update -> with collectd-5.5.0.git_.2020.05.05 and there doesn't seem to be any problems.
