Erlang/OTP 17 [erts-6.0] [source-07b8f44] [async-threads:10]


{"init terminating in


Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump

init terminating in do_boot ()


Starting the application like this works fine:


$ erl -sname rpi2 -pa ebin/ -pa deps/*/ebin/

Erlang/OTP 17 [erts-6.0] [source-07b8f44] [async-threads:10]


Eshell V6.0  (abort with ^G)

(rpi2@REDACTED)1> application:start(othost).


What is going wrong here?
