Description John Heidemann 2014-08-12 04:14:21 UTC
Description of problem:
If radicale crashes, it must be manually restarted.
It should restart itself after failure.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time (it crashes)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start radicale
   systemctl enable radicale.service
   systemctl start radicale.service
2. kill it (killall ridcale) to simulate a crash
3. watch as all the contacts in your phone disappear when it times out trying to verify they still exist

Actual results:
radicale, when it's dead, is truely dead
and not just pining for the fjords.

Expected results:
it should spring back to life, a phoenix anew.

Additional info:
Suggested patch is to add these two lines to the [Service] part of


I'm not sure why it crashes.  An alternative is to fix all the bugs in it.  In the meantime, I suggest Restart is a plausible work-around.


Comment 1 Juan Orti Alcaine 2014-08-12 06:57:20 UTC
Why RestartSec=42s? Have you tested if the default 100ms works?

Comment 2 John Heidemann 2014-08-13 02:33:47 UTC
Nothing special about RestartSec=42s, I just copied it from sshd.service.
If you know better, please change it.
