  1. @soerenderfor Sorry for my late reply (homeoffice with kids is not the easiest way of debugging a system that I also use as a dns proxy). Yes, it now works. Basically, as I now understand it, I had been relying on hdparm setting parameters to the disk and the disk keeping them between reboots. I did not realize that there is a hdparm.conf file... So now that I have written my parameters into hdparm.conf, it does behave the way I have configured it (initially with a spin-down tiome of 24 (so 120 seconds), now 60 (so 5 minutes)). Thanks a lot for your help!!
  2. I've tried to blacklist snd-mtpav, and besides not having the module loaded (lsmod shows that the module is not loaded), I still have the crash at boot... It does not makes sense to me...
  3. I have tried OpenSeaChest, but this makes no difference (compared to using hdparm to set up power management parameters). I set the disk to spin down after 25s and it does not... Right now, I have to use a cron job to put it in standby every half an hour (since I only use this disk to do backups, it does not need to wake up beside in the middle of the night where the cron job does not run).
  4. For me, it seems to be working perfectly fine. I've just transferred more than 250G of backups back on my sata drive, no issues.
  5. After a cold boot, I don't have cpuerrors anymore (on 5.4.27). I've waited ~30s before restarting the system. I still have a crash but the kernel can recover (see [ 41.902116] ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 41.902135] WARNING: CPU: 4 PID: 1 at kernel/irq/manage.c:1990 request_threaded_irq+0x144/0x180 [ 41.902138] Modules linked in: [ 41.902149] CPU: 4 PID: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 5.4.27-rockchip64 #20.02.6 [ 41.902153] Hardware name: Pine64 RockPro64 (DT) [ 41.902158] pstate: a0000005 (NzCv daif -PAN -UAO) [ 41.902165] pc : reque
  6. I have installed the latest stale kernel from Armbian (5.4.27) and this does exactly the same... I will try to power down the system, leave it off for a few seconds and then restart, just in case...
  7. Has anybody seen this message at boot: [ 5.352826] CPU4: failed to come online [ 5.352835] CPU4: failed in unknown state : 0x0 [ 10.481328] CPU5: failed to come online [ 10.481336] CPU5: failed in unknown state : 0x0 Then, the A72 cores don't show up (unsurprisingly since these are the two cores that somehow did not come online). On top of that, the kernel throws a backtrace (related to sound if I understand correctly): ------------[ cut here ]------------ [ 13.014782] WARNING: CPU: 3 PID: 1 at kernel/irq/manage.c:1990 request_threaded_irq+0x144/0x180
  8. Hi! On the Rockpro64, with the latest Amrbian dev kernel (5.4.0-rc1-rockchip64 updated on 19th of January), the sata hard drive connected to PCIe through the pine store adapter does not go to sleep anymore. It is properly set with hdparm and a udev rule, it used to work fine with the dev kernel before the 19th of January update. Now, if I issue a sleep commd (hdpram -y /dev/sda) it goes to sleep properly but not by itself after the 5 minutes inactivity I have set up. Mathias
  9. @chwe Oops, I'd never looked at the specs sheet. I've always assumed that the numbers written on the disk itself were the max. consumption. I also did not understand that it was drawing both 5V and 12V (I though it was one or the other one). So, it takes up to 21W. But even if you add the board itself and the ssd (this one has for sure a low peak power, max 4W (from the spec sheet), the PSU should still have enough margin (my psu is not even 1 year old). I understand 21W is already consistent, but still way off what one could expect in a PC...
  10. @soerenderfor i guess you have to test with an ssd, not "just" hdds: the WD hdd draws 700mA while the Samsung 860 draws a maximum of 1.2A and the 840 Pro up to 1.4A (and in fact it seems that this maximum is very unregularly reached, leading to the observed behavior: it works for hours and then hell breaks through...) @chwe i doubt this is related: my board is from 04.2019 and if i don't use more than one hdd on the pcie, it works fine...
  11. @soerenderfor The HDD is a Western Digital Red (sata III, 4T, 3.5": WD40EFRX-68WT0N0). The SSD is a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB either directly connected in sata or through a JMicron JMS567 enclosure. If both drives are connected to the sata adapter (and nothing on usb), I get filesystem corruptions at random intervals (ie it looks like a power failure). If the HDD is on sata and the SSD on usb3, everything works fine (as for the last 5 months). My power supply is the 12V, 5A from the pine store. I also had major power issues in the past only using a Samsung 840 Pro in the same JMicron enclosure conne
  12. @soerenderfor My ASM1062 sata controller works fine, I have used it for 5 months now with a few different kernels (Ayufan's 5.3 kernel, Armbian's 5.4 and Armbian's 5.3). The only problems that I've had are related to power delivery: with one hdd, everything works fine. With one hdd on sata and one ssd one usb3, no problems. But with one hdd and one ssd on sata, major filesystem corruptions on the ssd more or less at random. This really mirrors the issues I had with some ssd drawing too much power off the usb3 port. So I understood it as yet another voltage regulation problem: on av
  13. @soerenderfor I have this PCIe -> Sata adapter: (and lspci gives me: SATA controller: ASMedia Technology Inc. ASM1062 Serial ATA Controller (rev 01)).
  14. @soerenderfor with my Armbian dev kernel (ie 5.4.0-rc1-rockchip64), if I do 'cat /sys/devices/platform/pwm-fan/hwmon/hwmon0/pwm1' I get a number (30 right now: I use ATS with a minimum speed of 30). So for me, it works with the dev kernel. I am also using the original nas case with the original fan and the medium or tall heatsink. Most of the time, it does nothing so I leave the fan on 30 as a minimum and it ramps up if things get busy. I usually have cpu temperatures around 38-40C too (I use the hard drives for backups, so the system gets to work more at night and then I want to make sure tha
  15. We talk about test of different parts. It was orginal one topic but split. The other is @deathisunknown Which kernel are you using? Until this week end, I was using Ayufan's kernel in order to have ats working (I have the nas box with a harddrive so I want to have some ventilation). I've switched to Armbian's current kernel (, I don't remember the exact subversion) and noticed that the fan would not spin. Then I tried Armbian's dev kernel (5.4.0-rc1) and my fan works fine.
