Error during dfx start, replica timeout


i have been trying to run the rust quick guide but on dfx start (or --clean) i keep getting replica-actor error.

i am using Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS on different machine in my local network if it makes any difference.

Any ideas? (docker has the same fate)

Thank you in advance.

Are you still seeing this issue?

I’ve run into this issue when I exit out of my local ICP while its processing a long running task

adding sudo to dfx start works for me after this happens as a temporary work around

Yes i am still encountering this issue.

Weird part is that it works on my WSL - ubuntu 20.04 with the exact same code/setup.
Both running dfx inside a docker, not sure what to assume. (hardware problem maybe?)

Same error on same tutorial.

(also Ubuntu 20.04)

This is probably a dumb question, but where is the src/dfx/src/actors/ file?
