  1. @Mabrafs Fixed with latest kernel please read posts in this thread for more information
  2. @StefanH. I think the issue was already fixed with 5.73 as I wrote that in an earlier posts. This is a mistake in the docs I guess. I checked myself /etc/armbian-release shows 5.73 and the image shows 5.75 so this might be a bug :D. I checked all my services yesterday and none failed on boot up with 5.75. no problem . I thought you already used apt to update and the kernel wasn't updated for some reason. Therefore I pointed on the armbian-config method. Typically apt does it. 5.74/5.75 however was not updated on my device. Or it was missing because auto updates run once per week on my machine
  3. @StefanH. You are very welcome! I did quite a few tests (including switching to mainline but dropped it in favour of the latest legacy). I upgraded the kernel and this also fixed the issue for me permanently without the need of downgrading "systemd". I am currently on ARMBIAN 5.73 stable Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS 3.4.113-sun8i but I will now upgrade to 5.74 as I saw there is a newer version. You can upgrade your kernel version via "sudo armbian-config" => System => Other. There you can choose the kernel you want to switch to. 4.x.x is mainline kernel and might break specific legacy board features so I would recommend 3.4.113 with version 5.73 or 5.74. But 5.73 already fixed the problem so it is up to you what version you want to choose. Update: strangely the update to 5.74 worked and after that the tool showed me 5.75 which also worked but motd still shows me 5.73. IDK what's is going on here. But I can confirm that 5.73 - 5.75 do work.
  4. @plus90 Hey I can't confirm that OpenVPN server is affected by the latest kernel version or by the latest systemd. My OpenVPN server on 5.73 is working as expected and I can connect like before. Everything is up to date on my server and I'm not facing issues. Just to let you know that this might not be a general problem. You are welcome but I'm not assuming that my solution will be a workaround as the problem might be located somewhere else but feel free to try it as it could be easily reverted ;). If the service is up and running there is a high chance that you're facing a problem that is not related to original systemd problem.
  5. So then also thanks @ning 😋, didn't check what was part of the actual fix!
  6. Just want to let you know that the issue was fixed with latest kernel and now working for me. See also post here.
  7. @Igor Can confirm that the updated fixed the issue. Updated to latest kernel, armbian + systemd. Thanks for the fix 👌
  8. @Igor haha, well that actually can happen quite easily
  9. @Sergio I can't tell how many end users were affected but also servers suffered. So this is definitely no OPI issue and I wouldn't untrust the platform. Take a look in this thread for further reading because I attached a handful of bug reports referencing to Ubuntu Launchpad concerning this issue. The origin is a systemd security update done by Ubuntu. If you would have run the same distro and kernel revision on a RPI it probably would have suffered the same issue because also x86_x64 platforms were affected. It is a annoying bug I totally agree and this shouldn't happen at all.
  10. @Sergio The problem with SBCs (except Raspberry) is that there is a huge variety of boards and SOCs (with limited native linux manufacturer support) which have to be integrated. This also made a legacy kernel necessary in the first place. In case of the RPI you actually have one type of SOC with different revisions which is much better supported and easier to integrate. Also the legacy kernel is quite old which might in this case also be the actual reason. I assume that the issue not absolutely has something to do with the SOC or board but rather with the kernel version. Because also other virtualized providers with specific kernels suffered the issue and this has actually nothing to do with a specific SBC or SOC.
  11. @Sergio You don't inevitably need to switch to Stretch to avoid the issue. Simply switching to mainline on Xenial will also work. As already said legacy kernel features will not work anymore but that would be the same for any mainline. Switching can be done through the armbian configuration tool.
  12. @scaevola Thanks for mentioning me. Here is my script on Github to automatically dowgrade systemd to latest functioning release, just in case that someone is interested or wants to try or use it ;). No need to dig in the original thread. The readme there also describes how to use it. Upgrading to mainline kernel also works, I have tried that the other day. But be aware that some applications especially crafted for legacy might break.
  13. @JRD McLAREN The first service that breaks should be `systemd-tmpfiles`. I have my doubts that this will get fixed on Ubuntus side, because I reported it. The legacy kernel is quite old and it looks like they somehow don't care if the new systemd breaks it or not as no one felt responsible answering anything about how or if this will be resolved. The only real solution is downgrading to 21.11 which is the last working systemd version and put systemd on hold, at least for some time and see if a newer systemd fixes the problem. Here is a link my script which does that automatically.
  14. @JRD McLAREN Does not really fix the root cause, only SSH is fixed other services might still not work / fail to start. Also UsePrivilegeSeparation might impose a higher security risk, for more info read the man page of sshd_config.
  15. @IgorS Ok can't say anything about that because I haven't tried. I assume video accel. in >16.04.5 does work so there might be a fix for that because all never version depend on mainline.
