    ww9rivers got a reaction from Velociraptor in Banana Pi running 5.90 random freezes & workaround   
    No. I have not, since the stress test didn't show any problem with power supply.
     
    The workaround has kept the box up for 11 days now:
     
    $ uptime
     04:42:34 up 11 days,  5:02,  9 users,  load average: 0.21, 0.28, 0.28

    I have read two old threads in this forum:
    I have been running this (will post more details if needed) for a few days:
    VERSION=5.90
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=18.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=bionic
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS"
    NAME="Ubuntu"
    VERSION="18.04.3 LTS (Bionic Beaver)"
     
    Kernel is 4.19.62-sunxi
     
    The BPi would hang/freeze, seemingly randomly within a day or two. When it does that, there is no HDMI video or response to ping.
     
    After reading the first thread, I did stress test on the BPi for more than 2 days. The BPi actually hold up.
     
    So, next I ran "ping -i 30 -D 192.168.8.1" -- pinging my home gateway every 30 seconds. The BPi has also been up while that is going on. Now its uptime is more than 5 days.
     
    I have no problem keeping this going as a workaround -- just thought it may also be of interest to some one.

    ww9rivers got a reaction from Igor in RESOLVED: Bananapi M1 Bionic mainline 4.19.y: no HDMI video   
    Sorry it's been a while. Just wanted to say that Igor was right: The problem had been the SD card.
     
    I misunderstood the BPi's boot process, which actually attaches the BPi to the network and tries to boot off the network when the SD card doesn't work, which explains the activities on the network side.
     
    Once I attached to the UART serial console, it immediately became clear to me what was wrong.
     
    So thanks to Igor for the help.
