  1. @tooz Thanks for your replay. I was able to solve the problem by removing the ntp package.
  2. Hello everyone, The logrotate.timer does not work cyclically in Tinker Edge R Debian 10 V2.0.5. This problem causes the log file to become large and take up drive space. On this OS, logrotate is executed by systemd, not cron. I understand that the essence of the problem is that logrotate.timer is not enabled. $ systemctl status logrotate.timer * logrotate.timer - Daily rotation of log files Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/logrotate.timer; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead) Trigger: n/a Docs: man:logrotate(8) man:logrotate.conf(5) Looking at the configuration file, the timer should run once a day. $ systemctl cat logrotate.timer # /lib/systemd/system/logrotate.timer [Unit] Description=Daily rotation of log files Documentation=man:logrotate(8) man:logrotate.conf(5) [Timer] OnCalendar=daily AccuracySec=12h Persistent=true [Install] WantedBy=timers.target It appears in the timer list, but there is no execution history. $ systemctl list-timers NEXT LEFT LAST PASSED UNIT ACTIVATES n/a n/a n/a n/a anacron.timer anacron.service n/a n/a n/a n/a apt-daily-upgrade.timer apt-daily-upgrade.service n/a n/a n/a n/a apt-daily.timer apt-daily.service n/a n/a n/a n/a fstrim.timer fstrim.service n/a n/a n/a n/a logrotate.timer logrotate.service I have tried start logrotate.timer, but this command never completes. $ sudo systemctl start logrotate.timer I have confirmed that logrotate can be run manually. $ sudo /usr/sbin/logrotate -v /etc/logrotate.conf There is an option to edit /etc/cron.daily/logrotate to ignore the systemd timer and run logrotate in cron, but I consider this a last resort. Could anyone please share the steps to start logrotate.timer? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
