  1. I've no specific postgresql experience but I have found that the way Armbian handles logging to zram can mean that the log files either don't exist or can't be written. Generally the answer to situations like this is to try running the binary from a command prompt with the 'verbose' switch set, if it then runs OK, try to modify the sysctl files to enable logging.
  2. I can't help thinking that something isn't right with your hardware. Have you tried booting the bare board "normally" from an SD card? I'm running my OPi3 on what is quite an old build but it seems rock solid.

  4. Maybe people looking to run a stable system should just stop chasing the very latest of everything! This uptime of 42 days is only because of a local power outage, otherwise it's absolutely rock solid running snapd, nextcloud, mosquitto, node-red, grafana, .....
  5. Without any information on what error messages you see it is almost impossible to suggest what may be wrong. Are you using a good power supply? Have you tried a different supply? Have you tried a different SD card?
  6. Remember that the H6 boards are still very much in development stage. If you aren't prepared to lose some data then IMHO you should choose a more stable platform.
  7. What is your power supply? You say "if the light comes back....." so are you using some kind of solar power? Why do you not want the systems to run continuously? You will struggle to get any board to start reliably if the power supply voltage increases slowly and a poor power supply is the cause of most reliability issues with any sbc. If you do have a solar supply you need to use a controller which switches the supply off and on according to the battery voltage. I strongly suspect that this could be your problem rather than the OS. You can try Armbian which I have always found
  8. I have a NanoPi Neo4 running "Debian Buster with Armbian Linux 4.4.190-rk3399" and I don't see this problem. I see this in htop:
  9. I've just come across this same problem. I copied the two files 'fw_bcm43438a1.bin' and 'fw_bcm43438a1_apsta.bin' (I'm not sure if that second one is needed) from /lib/firmware/ap6212/ to /lib/firmware/rkwifi/ and rebooted and the wifi now works OK. My board is very much a 'test bed' at the moment so I'm happy to test any possible fixes. George
  10. I just bought a FriendlyElec NanoPi Neo4 having had loads of experience with Armbian on Allwinner (OrangePi) boards. My preferred method for getting boards "up and running" is simply to connect a serial terminal to the debug port and power on. I tried this with several Armbian Buster images and found that I couldn't log in as root on any of them. Checking the SD card on my laptop, the debug port (ttyFIQ0) was missing from /etc/securetty. Editing /etc/securetty and adding ttyFIQ0 on a new line at the bottom of the file and all is well and I now have Buster u
  11. This is working very well for me (only 5 days uptime due to local power outage - otherwise it "just works" :-)
  12. Thanks MaX, but now I already have what I need - thanks to some others' comments on my post :-)
  13. Now that the OPi3 has been moved into the Armbian downloads section there needs to be be a set of 'known-to-be-working' images made available while development on newer kernels and features continues. There will be a number of people buying the OPi3 as their first SoC board, trying the 'factory' images (as we have all done in the past ) and then coming here where they will currently find images labelled "Suitable for Testing" that will not boot. This is not a great first impression of Armbian for these people, who won't yet have the knowledge or experience to hold back upgrade pack
  14.
