  1. Progress update: kernel 4.19.70 fails. .65 works. Testing .67 now. edit: .66 has not crashed yet. Will wait to see if it can stay alive for 12 hours. I'm trying to compile kernels based on commit. It doesn't seem to work though. I'm trying ``` --- a/config/sources/families/mvebu.conf +++ b/config/sources/families/mvebu.conf @@ -10,7 +10,7 @@ fi case $BRANCH in legacy) - KERNELBRANCH='tag:v4.19.66' + KERNELBRANCH='commit:46b306f3cd7b47901382ca014eb1082b4b25db4a' ;; ``` Which
  2. With the watchdog disabled, it does not reboot. I have a serial log with journalctl -f running. I can't see anything interesting. Anyway, I now conclude this is an upstream kernel issue. Given that I know kernel 4.19.84 works and .104 is broken, I will try to narrow the issue down. edit: nope. .84 reboots as well. Given that I know .63 works (I had multiple months of uptime), I'll try versions between .63 and .84. Starting with .70.
  3. The more I think about this the more I think it's the kernel and not the power supply. I have 4 laptop hard drives connected to my Helios4. Those only use 5V. I also only started having issues when I swapped out the kernel. Time to figure out how to build an old kernel looks like.
  4. @gprovostI bought mine in the last batch. It's been running every day. Any way to test the PSU? @HeisathLooks like no luck on the former. The latter throws an XML error.
  5. @gprovost That sounds bad. OTOH, it makes no sense that I started having these issues once I got off kernel 4.19.63. It would be interesting to bisect to see where between 4.19.84 and 4.19.104 it started failing. edit: actually, is there a .deb file for that version anywhere?
  6. watchdog is running. should I disable?
  7. Sigh false alarm. It still happens. I've learned that I can reproduce by downloading with qbittorrent in addition to watching a video connected through a Samba share. This actually reminds me of the time on my Turris Omnia that I managed to reboot the device just by watching a video through a Samba share. I wonder if the same thing is happening here... When I mentioned that I could do this with mvebu and Samba but not ksmbd, the DD-WRT developer told me it's a serious kernel issue if a userspace program can crash the kernel. I only installed linux-image-current-mvebu_20
  8. I found the issue. It's some local armbian patch that messing things up. I recently cloned https://github.com/armbian/build and removed 5 pointless patches. That PR was merged. So I built that and same issue. Then I deleted a bunch of patches from the mvebvu-current directory. So far with this kernel, I am not getting any issues. My git status currently is this: ``` deleted: patch/kernel/mvebu-current/0044-gpio-report-all-gpios-in-debugfs.patch deleted: patch/kernel/mvebu-current/40-pci-add-irq-change-handler-sspl.patch
  9. Just happened again. Serial output shows nothing. First line is me connected and then just U-Boot. Looks like I'll have to compile my own kernel with most of the patches stripped out...
  10. Yeah. Once I got rid of kernel 4.19.63 to test newer ones, I can't get uptime longer than several hours. Maybe 2-3. As for serial, I don't have a spare laptop to hook up. Maybe I can think of something. I wonder if there's an Android app for this...
  11. I seem to have issues on my Helios 4 where it constantly reboots. I have no idea what happens just before. I assume some kind of kernel panic. Kernel 4.19.63 - works 4.19.84 - I believe works 4.19.104 and above - broken Newer ones are broken as well. This is most likely an issue with some local patch. Any way to view the history?
  12. ah not the same issue as mine then. I just tried the latest 4.19 and 5.4 kernel versions. both reboot randomly. Unfortunately now I need to find the old kernel that I was using...
  13. Is this a freeze or a random reboot? I experienced the latter during the 5.4 kernel cycle. Actually it seems to be some regression made during the 4.19 series. I'm still on 4.19.63-mvebu for that reason.
  14. Ah never mind. 19.5 volts vs 12 volts.
  15. I wonder if I will join the same failed PSU club... I have two power supplies that are the same as the one included EXCEPT for the fact that they are female connectors, not male. Any way to adapt them so that they work? Also, does anyone know if kernel 5.7 is stable? I'm running on 4.19.63 as 4.19.108 or w/e it was had stability problems (random reboots). Same with some of the earlier 5.4 kernels.
  16. Has anyone gotten nextcloud with docker working? I downloaded the official docker container from docker hub but I can't seem to get it to connect to my local MariaDB instance. Keep getting Connection Refused.
  17. Thank you for this answer. Makes sense.
  18. My kernel right now is 4.19.63-mvebu. Is this the latest version? It doesn't sound like it is.
  19. Then why don't those modules appear on my Helios with lsmod? Running Buster. Only af_alg shows up.
  20. Those instructions won't help when the necessary kernel modules are missing.
  21. Bah kernel issue. lsmod says only af_alg is loaded. algif_hash and algif_skcipher are also needed. Actually I'm not sure about the former since hashes are a bad idea to hardware accelerate.
  22. Anyone able to get hardware acceleration working with OpenSSL? I installed cryptsetup and ran benchmark. I saw that the crypto engine was being used as it generated interrupts (/proc/interrupts) but not with OpenSSL. I recall cryptsetup giving me 80MB/s on some AES setting and 20MB/s when I did rmmod on marvell_cesa. I can't get it working with OpenSSL though.
