Install on Debian 11: Failed to create shared memory object "FTL-lock": Permission denied

Expected Behaviour:

After installation, Pihole-FTL should be up and running.

Actual Behaviour:

Pihole isinstalled without error message. However, when load the webinterface, i get the message "DNS service not running", FTL icon is also red.

In /var/log/pihole-FTL.log, i see the message:

Debug Token:

After re-install the complete image, installation and function is working fine now. I have no idea what was wrong with the previous installation.

From my side of view, we can close this request, but it would be nice if there could be a more verbose hint in the logfile, what file or directory needs the right privileges.

This is not straightforward to answer. Typically it will be the directory /dev/shm but operating systems are free to chose whatever they prefer and I'm not aware if we can get that reliably without too much overhead.

Something was definitely wrong with the system, maybe shared memory wasn't initialized correctly.
