I am building my open source project on Xenial, using the RethinkDB addon. Here’s the relevant
dist: xenial language: python python: - 2.7 - 3.4 - 3.5 - 3.6 - 3.7 addons: rethinkdb: 2.3
I can see this in the build logs:

However, RethinkDB is not started. I tried debugging the build and I saw the following:
$ sudo service rethinkdb status # ...status: active (exited)...
In debug mode, I did a manual:
$ sudo service rethinkdb stop $ sudo service rethinkdb start
and then it finally started, with the
status: active (running) status.
What could be the problem and how can this be fixed?
