Initial Sentry fails at the beginning

Hi, I’ve downloaded the official installation from github and I run the but I get this error somewhere in the middle of the process and it crashes here:

no crontab for root

I did not change anything at docker-compose.yml or install directory.
What is that all about ?
Thank you

Can you share your Docker version? Also what operating system are you on?

Docker version 19.03.13
docker-compose version 1.29.2
CentOS Linux release 7.8.2003 (Core)
I’ve noticed there is a cron directory in git repo that inside that directory there is a Dockerfile but it can’t build on CentOS, So I’ve build the required images on Ubuntu 20 and copied them on CentOS machine. I guess it’s about CentOS, as far as I remember Sentry is pretty much fine with Ubuntu, isn’t it ?!!

it’s silly but after spending a lot of searching I’ve changed the official to this and now it’s working:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
if [ "$(ls -A /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/)" ]; then
declare -p | grep -Ev 'BASHOPTS|BASH_VERSINFO|EUID|PPID|SHELLOPTS|UID' > /container.env


{ for cron_job in "$@"; do echo ${cron_job} | crontab - ; done}

crontab -l
exec cron -f -l -L 15

I still don’t know what was the problem at the first place.

May be you can propose that as a PR in the repo and we’ll see if it still works on Ubuntu (then we may incorporate your fix).
