gputool --config not loading on startup on 2 rigs
also applied long time wait but gputool --config just wont load automatically.

found a solution to fix this problem.
If someone has something similar that gputool not loading on boot.
Just add this line before start 1 in startup.sh
sleep 50 && /opt/pimp/gputool --config /root/gpu-config.json
The solution was to increase the sleep time to 50 in startup.sh. Thank you very much chowhan!
However, to capture some troubleshooting glory, here is some excerpt from the pimp discord to help pimps troubleshooting startup issues!
Can you run: /root/startup.sh and does it run gputool properly? Manually run it now and see. We'll have to suffer and wait through those sleep delays.
the next thing to check is nano /etc/crontab
Line 49 should read @reboot root /root/startup.sh
Or, at least, that line should be in the file. Is it?
Lets try something else. In startup.sh add the line: cat /proc/uptime >> /root/testing.log
Then reboot, and see if that file is there and contains the timestamp of running it in uptime in seconds after the boot
Put it anywhere but not before the #!/bin/bash part. that should always be at the top the #! stuff is for linux scripts to know how to run (It's called the SHABANG! which i love)
Was the file created?
The idea was, on boot time, the current system uptime was appended to the end of the text file /root/testing.log.
To check it: type: cat /root/testing.log
So the startup.sh file was executed about 7 and a half seconds after boot.
You can now do another test.
rm /root/testing.log to clear it.
Then: move the cat /proc/uptime >> /root/testing.log line to after the first sleep blabla and gputool blabla line
Then reboot. and you should see the time that the sleep and gputool command completes
make sure its /opt/pimp/gputool not just gputool
