Running sonarr on FreeBSD to keep track of television that we watch works great, but sometime mono gives up the ghost (exited on signal 6) for no easily apparent reason. As this seems to be some sort of fatal error within the mono framework, it is probably a bit beyond my actual understanding.

However, it’s a somewhat infrequent (2–3 times a week?) occurrence. So maybe we can just set a monitor daemon to keep an eye on sonarr & restart it as need be. Or at least that’s the solution I have gone with.

(Related: this solution should totally work for FreeNAS users as well, as this is all done in a jail on my FreeBSD server)

As I’ve mentioned previously, some of the command line tricks for batch processing PDB coordinates for electrostatics models throw some errors back at you, although they don’t implicitly prevent you from using APBS. They just make the surface models look a bit ugly, as you’ll have conflicting charges confined in an unnatural environment, yielding bizarre electrostatics representations (I’ll have to generate an image sometime).
