    Try changing CPU governor to "performance" and report if that helps.

    My uptime is 7 days. As long as never before. I guess the change to "performance" works. Thank you very much.

  2. @Igor Thanks in advance. I changed the setup. In '/etc/default/cpufrequtils' is saw 'MAX_SPEED=1010000'. With 'cpufreq-info' i saw this line 'hardware limits: 144 MHz - 960 MHz'. I changed the value to 'MAX_SPEED=960000'.

     

    Best regards!

    Hello,

     

    my BananaPi M1 sometimes just stops working. The maximum uptime is 5 days. Usually the time is shorter. The system simply hangs. I can no longer access the system via SSH. When I connect a monitor to HDMI, nothing is displayed, so I can log in.

    I have connected an external hard drive that is self-powered. I know the stories with the power supply. I have run ' stress -c 2 -m 1 '. The system remains stable.

    I also executed 'armbianmonitor -u'.The log is here: http://ix.io/2lzX

     

    I checked syslog, daemon.log, user.log, armbian-ramlog.log for errors. With my amateurish understanding I did not find any error entries. In which logs can I still look up to search for errors?

     

    I have installed armbian buster minimal. Additionally I have pihole, transmission (to seed armbian torrents https://forum.armbian.com/topic/4198-seed-our-torrents/) and syncthing running. Other programs I have not installed yet.

     

  4. 1007M swap. I don't know... This is from dmesg:

  6. Hello,


    I followed the instructions for installing transmission and seed the torrents. When I then download the torrents with

    sudo /etc/cron.daily/seed-armbian-torrent

    my internal memory is used and filled up. The torrents are stored on the external hard disk.

    df -h
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mmcblk0p1  7,4G  7,3G     0 100% /

    Normally 5.6G from the internal memory card is used. What uses this memory?

     

     I have linked the links from transmission for blocklists, resume, torrents to my external USB hard disk to save space but it didn't help.

    ls -al /var/lib/transmission-daemon/.config/transmission-daemon/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root                root                  64 Apr  2 22:56 blocklists -> /mnt/EXTUSB/Transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/blocklists/

    That is something wrong on your side. HDMI 100% works.

    I found the error. It was because of my HDMI cable. With a shorter cable it works. Now my Bananapi M1 runs well.

     

    @Igor: Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for the quick answers. Now I share all current torrents for that SBC.

  8. Thank you very much. This was really fast.

     

    I tried different images:

    • Armbian_5.90_Bananapi_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113_desktop - Green heartbeat LED flashes sometimes. No HDMI output.
    • Armbian_19.11.6_Bananapi_buster_current_5.4.8_desktop - No heartbeat LED. No HDMI output.
    • All new Armbian_20.02.5_Bananapi_xxxx_xxxxx_5.4.26 - No heartbeat LED. No HDMI output.

    Is HDMI output enabled? Is the green heartbeat LED enabled?

     

    I want to install some things in front of the SBC. If all is configured I want to use it headless.

     

    Do you have some hints for me?

  9. Hello,

     

    I wanted to upgrade my Bananapi M1. So I downloaded "Buster minimal" from https://www.armbian.com/bananapi/ Last modified: 2020-02-17. I flashed the image to my SD card and started the SBC. But nothing happened. I got no heartbeat LED nor HDMI output. (I know from my Tinkerboard that I have to boot without connected HDMI to start correct. I did this with the bananapi too.) So I tried different variants: Bionic server, Buster server and Buster desktop. I never had a video output. I cross checked with my old raspian lite from 2016. With this image the Bananapi works. I used dd and Etcher for SD card preparation.

     

    What am I doing wrong? Can I use this version with the Bananapi?

     

    Best regards.

    We added some patches from Asus to enable some of the nicer things like CEC/etc, unfortunately someone with a similar problem apparently simply decided to start cutting wires instead of finishing the software debug.  Have you tried another monitor that may have different/more limited capabilities?

    I've tested it with two Full HD televisions of different brands that works when it is connected at startup. Then I checked the monitor that don't work.

    UART adapter on the debug UART (it is either UART 2 or 3, it changed at one point and then again after the vendor kernel issues)  That will show whatever output is being produced by U-boot/the kernel (assuming it gets to the kernel but dies parsing the DT)

    Debian GNU/Linux 9 tinkerboard ttyS3

    All works fine. No error messages. With the second monitor that dont works I don't get an output.

     

    Bottom line: I can start the tinkerboard with a Full HD TV. When I connect the board to the monitor (resolution 1920 x 1200) via HDMI it does not start. I started the tinkerboard with the unplugged HDMI cable. The Tinkerboard starts normal. When the yellow and green LEDs lights up I connect the HDMI monitor. The monitor works an has the correct resolution. The board works fine.

     

    Appendix:

    I searched the internet for the message "Card did not respond to voltage select!". It seems to be a common problem with U-Boot but nobody is concerned. So I guess in my case, it's not the problem.

    I don't know the comment. Do you have a link?

  11. Hello,

    I'm observing a strange behavior. If I connect the Tinkerboard to HDMI, it won't start. Only the red led LED lights up. Yellow and green did not light up. The Tinkerboard ist connected to a NorthPada 5V 3A Micro USB Charger power supply. I measured the supply voltage with 5.3V and checked with an oscilloscope if there are voltage dips. But the voltage was stable.

    I did a cross test. I unplugged the HDMI cable and started the Tinkerboard. The Tinkerboard starts and the yellow and green LEDs lights up. I measured the supply voltage with 5.3V and checked with an oscilloscope if there a voltage dips. The voltage was stable and dropped to roughly 5.1V for a short time when the green LED flashed. I can connect the HDMI monitor and work with it. The board works fine.

    I use Armbian_5.59_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.67

    How can I check what's going wrong and where the Tinkerboard stucks in the boot process.
    Whats wrong with the HDMI?

  12. I use  "Armbian_5.59_Tinkerboard_Debian_stretch_next_4.14.67". After every reboot the line for the nameserver in resolv.conf looks like this:

    ^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@nameserver 192.168.3.1

    When I delete all ^@ chars my networks works fine. After reboot the characters are inserted again. I tried "chmod 444 resolv.conf" but after reboot resolv.conf has 644 again. How can I correct this? What is the problem with my installation?

     

    Best regards.
