Raspberrypi Gateway Start Issue

I've installed Ignition 8.1.26 on a Raspberry Pi 4 B running Noobs, using the armhf-32 install files. I receive the following error when trying to start the gatway.
admin@raspberrypi:~ $ /usr/local/bin/ignition/Ignition-linux-armhf-32-8.1.26/ignition.sh start
Starting Ignition-Gateway with systemd...
Job for Ignition-Gateway.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status Ignition-Gateway.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
Failed to start service Ignition-Gateway

I'm very new to Linux so I'm not sure where to find these files, or why this may be failing. Any help would be appreciated!

Well, systemd points users at its own logging infra, which typical Linux services will use. Instead, you should look in the logs folder of your install, specifically for wrapper.log. That should provide the information you need. Post a snippet here if you need help deciphering it. (Be sure to use this forum's "Preformatted text" editor button when posting code or log extracts.)

The folder where the install files are is
However, /usr/local/bin/ignition/Ignition-linux-armhf-32-8.1.26/logs is completely empty. Is that where I should be looking?

Normally, yes. Does your ignition.conf file specify an alternate location for logs? If so, do that specified folder location exist?

Log file to use for wrapper output logging.


I believe this is the folder being specified. This is line 100 and 101 of the ignition.conf file

I uninstalled ignition and then re-installed the aarch-64-8.1.27 version rather than the 32 version, and it has now started!
