I get locked out everyday?

What is the problem?

Every day when I try to login octoprint claims my password is wrong so I have to ssh and change it. I log in multiple times through the day and it's fine, seems to be in the mornings. I am running the new camera stack build and have recently used the deploy script to add another instance (this happened before then too). Also, whilst using the script it appeared to remove camera-streamer? The stream still works but haven't rebooted yet. My problem now is I don't know how to get into the venv for the second instance to reset the password. I have octoanywhere and simplyprint installed but surely these shouldn't mess with local account passwords?

Edit: So I remembered about syncing password with the deploy script, so I have access to both instances again. Still don't understand why this keeps happening and also a little worried about the camera situation. Don't want to add a second camera unless I'm using the new stack. Is there a way I could check?

What did you already try to solve it?

Reset one account to regain access to one instance

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint 1.9.2, OctoPi 1.0.0, pi 4b 8GB. Desktop installed.


Update: Restarted and camera is down :frowning:

If the script runs sudo apt upgrade, due to a new libcamera version coming out yesterday it appears apt is quite happy to remove camera-streamer because it depends on a different version. It's a known issue now but definitely will cause some headaches. I believe there's a new build now available so hopefully it doesn't get deleted on an apt upgrade anymore...

To reinstall it, try sudo apt update and sudo apt install camera-streamer-raspi. I don't think you need just plain camera-streamer any more, as it's migrated to the -raspi variant.
