SynoCommunity Syncthing package, update 1.19.0-24 (for Synology)

Excellent work, many thanks @acolomb & @hgy59 and, needless to say, thanks to all involved in Syncthing for providing and supporting such an amazing piece of software :smiley:

I manage two NAS devices, both on DSM 7.x. I reported that I hit the issue when installing v1.19.0-24 on the first. I can now report that installing v.1.19.0-25 did not cause the same issue.

Thanks @calmh for helping to engage the right folks and thanks @acolomb and @hgy59 for the fix!

I updated 1.19.0-25 and now the service will not run, how did you resolve?

This is a known problem with a fix already pending for the next package update. It just hasn’t been published yet. The simplest solution to quickly fix the problem of not starting is shared in another thread:

Note there is some advice on other possible solutions in there as well. But all you really need is the one command from the linked post, entered through an SSH session as admin.

Tracking the issue happens at Syncthing Not Starting, after update to 1.19.0.25 · Issue #5142 · SynoCommunity/spksrc · GitHub.

Hmm. I think it happend again to me. Two of my DSM6 syncthings stopped working after upgrading synthing in the synology package center to v1.20.0-26. It is running, but i cannot open the gui. DSM7 is still running. Am I the only one with this problem?

That’s interesting, can you try to provide more details? Log file would help for example, it should be acccessible through the standard Log Center application on DSM or under /var/packages/syncthing/var/syncthing.log.

I just tried the upgrade right now on my box running DSM 6.2.4 and it worked without any problem.

Hi, here is the log. I removed the id’s. Thanks in advance.

The last warning is interessting. SC seems to run but something with the gui is broken.

Best regards Matthias

This is "accept: function not implemented" after upgrading to syncthing v1.20.1 · Issue #8325 · syncthing/syncthing · GitHub, in short your kernel is too old.

Ok. So my only option is to go back to the last running version and disable the updates for syncthing, right?

If you can’t upgrade the system to something newer, yes, I think so.

Which Synology DS types you are using?

Two DS413j and one DS415play

DS413j has platform “Marvell Kirkwood 88F6282” // 88f628x
DS415play has platform Intel Atom CE5335 // Evansport

So, formal both are supported.

Maybe the list of supported devices needs an update😉

I don’t think so, actually.

I assume that the two DS413j are the ones whose GUI does not respond. Maybe it’s just a matter of waiting, because these have a DDR3 with 512 MB, which isn’t much, plus a “j” isn’t necessarily performant either. How much data do you have and how big are the biggest files?

What about the DS415play, does it work with the update?

I have also updated a DS415+ which is similar to the DS415play and it runs without problems.

The 415play is running fine.

The 413j are not responding on the gui. Yes the are old. Syncing around 10 TB, largest files ~15GB.

Andy, read above. At least some devices with at least some versions of DSM 6 have a kernel that’s too old to run the latest Syncthing builds. It’s not a question of whether these devices are “supported” by SynoCommunity or by Syncthing. Though, if they can be upgraded to DSM 7 that maybe comes with a newer kernel. :man_shrugging:

The culprit is in the following commit, isn’t it?

If one reverts the commit (e.g. by modifying the files in the local Go’s src folder), and then compiles Syncthing themselves, everything should still work as before, right?

Probably rather the mentioned CL, as that looks like just a cleanup commit. But honestly, I don’t really care to figure it out or try it to answer that question. Go for it, if you like.

At some point, if you’re going to run a decade-plus old operating system you have to accept that there’s a horizon for how new software you can run. Running a one month old Syncthing on that operating system seems part and parcel of the trade-off.

Anyway … good to know, finally it seems no Syncthing issue. In addition Synology is known to use rather older kernels, because the DSx15 are not much older either.

You probably still had the SynoCommunity Syncthing package version 1.19.0-25 installed and had to rebuild the config, wasn’t that the case? Did you have the automatic internal update activated until the update to version 1.20.0-26?

If you now want to reinstall older version 1.19.0-25 or even 1.17.0-22, it gets a bit trickier, because then you would have to set to lower package version via console, otherwise no previous version can be installed. Otherwise only a new installation would help.
