Airtime-liquidsoap failed to start because of restart counter

Actualy i did not know that there was a restart counter in liquidsoap.
This is the output of systemctl status airtime-liquidsoap

I only started airtime-liquidsoap once.
Has anyone else had this issue? All help apreciated
My system is a freshly installed debian Buster (10.4)

I have some additional information after sudo -u www-data airtime-liquidsoap --debug

I suspect you might be running an older version of LibreTime vs. the current git master.
We are in the process of switching to python3.

If you can try installing the latest master branch on git and see if you run into the same problem. It seems like the issue might be with the version of liquidsoap and we have some fixes for that but I’m not sure when exactly they were merged.

Thanks for the help. I will need to wait till next week for trying this since i am travelling for work at the moment.

I got finally an opportunity to install the latest master branch and everything is working perfectly.

Thank you for the help.
