  1. @tpm8: Did I understood you correct that your self compiled uboot is stable? Can you make it available? Then I could test it on my cubietrucks. I was experimenting with governors because I read in a forum that people fixed it by modifying this but it seems to have no effect. 5.20 is still the stablest. Especially on the machine with an InfluxDB on it any higher version then 5.20 crashs after 2-10h in normal operation ... with 5.20 it happends after 2-6weeks (but happends still). But in the end I have this effect on all my 4 cubietrucks I use for my home-automation. Powering is different but all more then enough (2A+) ...
  2. @tpm8: Do you got the armbian cubietruck u-boot defconfig file in order to compare it to the mainline default config?
  3. Do an "apt-get update" and look if all repositories could be read successfully. I had the topic on a Wheezy Legacy system that because of the repo move to HTTPS the old configured HTTP URLS did not worked any longer. I needed to change them in /etc/apt/sources.list to https
  4. How it can be HW related when it works rock solid with one version of u-boot and instable with an other ?!
  5. Crash on the Xenial server (so vanilla = next) with 5.24 after 9h in normal operation (there is mainly an influxdb+redis slave running). Went back to 5.20 there. On Debian Wheezy (legacy=default) still ok ... will see there. Powering can not be the reason.
  6. I just installed the "default" version on a Wheezy Legacy and the next on a Xenial ... will report if I have problems in normal operation
  7. But be carefull. At least uboot should be used from 5.20 because 5.23 showed instability in some load-cases ...
  8. For me 5.20 worked stable a ling time (ok on Cubietruck) ...maybe also worth a try (beside the beta 5.24)
  9. Thank you for this solution! Download file and install directly with "dpkg -i" ?! Or what is the preferred way to install it?
  10. Hey, after making sure that all packages are current (armbianmobitor upload available at http://sprunge.us/Migh)I still have the problem currently that my three cubietruicks freeze after working 1-3 days. Mostly they are still ping-able, but no "heartbeat led blinking" happens anymore and SSH connect also not possible. The logs simply say nothing. Is there anything knows with uboot 5.23 in case ob unstability? The last uboot I remember that was quite stable was 5.20 ... Can I simply downgrade to that using sudo apt-get install linux-u-boot-cubietruck-next=5.20 or such? Thanks for an advice... Ingo Fischer
  11. The problems (at least the dependencies to install the *-tools packages could be solved using wheezy backports, or ?! is that the way to go there? Are those two packages (sunxi-tools and armbian-tools-jessie) important enough for a "normal server user" to start with using backports?!
  12. Additionally while comparing the both Xenial cubietricks I had "armbian-hostapd 5.13" on one and "armbian-hostapd-xenial 5.14", but both packages do not seems to be existant anymore: root@cubietruck2:~# apt-get install armbian-hostapd-xenial Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package armbian-hostapd-xenial root@cubietruck2:~# apt-get install armbian-hostapd Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package armbian-hostapd is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However the following packages replace it: hostapd-realtek hostapd E: Package 'armbian-hostapd' has no installation candidate By what they were replaced? I now installed hostapd ... I'm not using Wifi spo far so schould be unimportant :-)
  13. First thank you for the detailed answer! The wheezy computer was not my real problem to be honest. it was stable a long time and that's good and I soon want to move to Xenian also on that Cubietruck. But because of this it was interesting that after the last version of Armbian both Cubietrucks that I had with Xenial (so Nr 2 and 3) crashed 1-2 times ... before that last update with 5.20 they were also quite stable. So the question was more what to do about them to make them stable again? Downgrade to last u-boot? PS: I followed the instructions above on the wheezy system and have the following errors: On removing: dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of linux-libc-dev:armhf: libc6-dev:armhf depends on linux-libc-dev. dpkg: error processing linux-libc-dev:armhf (--remove): dependency problems - not removing on installing root@cubietruck:~# apt-get install armbian-tools-jessie sunxi-tools Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: armbian-tools-jessie : Depends: libudev1 but it is not installable sunxi-tools : Depends: libusb-1.0-0 (>= 2:1.0.16) but 2:1.0.11-1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
  14. Hey Igor, is this mainly the advise for my first machine (the Wheezy/Legacy one?) ... The others for Trusty and Xenial should not be that old and both using Vanilla kernels ...
  15. Cubietruck 1 - Wheezy (Legacy kernel) ... currently the "Main" server for my home-automation stuff ... planned to re-setup with Xenial hopefully soon http://sprunge.us/HaaG Cubietruck 2 - Xenial, original Trusty, upgraded with dist-upgrade to Xenial: http://sprunge.us/QWGD Cubietruck 3 - Xenial: http://sprunge.us/gOab Thank you for all your great work&support!
  16. 2x Xenial: Linux cubietruck3 4.8.4-sunxi #6 SMP Sun Oct 23 15:55:47 CEST 2016 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux ... and here I had the crashes independent of the package differences on both Cubies (see http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/2692-package-differences-after-cubietruck-trusty-xenial-and-520-523-upgrade/) ... linux-u-boot-cubietruck-next 5.23 is installed 1x Wheezy (but here I had crashes before 5.23 ... no since the upgrade): Linux cubietruck 3.4.112-sun7i #10 SMP PREEMPT Sun Oct 23 15:49:51 CEST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux ... but noticed here that "linux-u-boot-cubietruck" in 5.00 (2016-01) is installed. Can I install "linux-u-boot-cubietruck-next" there too? Before that it was more stable with 5.20 Armbian
  17. Hey, I experience cracshes of my cubietrucks (2x Xenial, 1x Wheezy) with 5.23 Armbian packages ... Can these also be because of newest u-boot?
  18. Are there any news on an "official" solution on this? I'm updated to 5.23 on a cubietruck and also/still have this problem. I will try to blacklist the modules too ...
  19. Hey, I have one system completely new installed with Armbian Xenial and one system installed with Armbian Trusty (some time ago) and then done Dist-Upgrade. Now after upgrading both from 5.20 to 5.23 I checked the relevant packages and there are differences: Original Xenial system: root@cubietruck3:~# dpkg -l | egrep "armbian| linux-" ii armbian-firmware 5.22 armhf Linux firmware ii armbian-hostapd-xenial 5.14 armhf Patched hostapd for xenial ii armbian-tools-xenial 5.22 armhf Armbian tools, temper, Cubie bt utils ii linux-base 4.0ubuntu1 all Linux image base package ii linux-dtb-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux DTB, version 4.8.4-sunxi ii linux-headers-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux kernel headers for 4.8.4-sunxi on armhf ii linux-image-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux kernel, version 4.8.4-sunxi ii linux-libc-dev:armhf 4.4.0-45.66 armhf Linux Kernel Headers for development ii linux-u-boot-cubietruck-next 5.23 armhf Uboot loader 2016.09 ii linux-xenial-root-next-cubietruck 5.23 armhf Armbian tweaks for xenial on cubietruck (next branch) Upgraded Xenial system: root@cubietruck2:~# dpkg -l | egrep "armbian| linux-" ii armbian-hostapd 5.13 armhf Patched hostapd ii linux-base 4.0ubuntu1 all Linux image base package ii linux-dtb-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux DTB, version 4.8.4-sunxi ii linux-firmware-image-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux kernel firmware, version 4.8.4-sunxi ii linux-headers-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux kernel headers for 4.8.4-sunxi on armhf ii linux-image-next-sunxi 5.23 armhf Linux kernel, version 4.8.4-sunxi ii linux-libc-dev:armhf 4.4.0-45.66 armhf Linux Kernel Headers for development ii linux-trusty-root-next-cubietruck 5.20 armhf Armbian tweaks for trusty on cubietruck (next branch) ii linux-u-boot-cubietruck-next 5.23 armhf Uboot loader 2016.09 There is still the trusty-root installed and not the xenial one. How should I fix that? Additionally the hostapd packages are different. How should I fix that? Thank you for your help here ... I would like to have clean systems as best possible to prevent future problems ...
  20. I fear that I already found the answer by my own: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic/941-bpi-r1-wlamobor1-and-disk-activity-green-led-help/ Still that way? :-( I also found that: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/gfTEe65oDoU Was in June and may be merged in July when I understood correctly ... whenever it comes then :-)
  21. Hey, for the LEDs the option "disk-activity" which was possible in Wheezy Legacy is no longer available. Is it possible to re-add that? Thank you, Ingo Fischer
  22. Hey, I have one Cubietruck newly installed with Xenial some weeks ago and one Cubie that had Trusty installed. Both Armbian. So today I made the dist-upgrade from Trusty to Xenial. After doing everything and reactivating the sources.list entries for Armbian and NodeJS (shoud be added to the FAQ!) i compared the output of apt-get update and ther eis a difference: Originally installed with Xenial (also InfluxDB installed, so should be only difference): Hit:1 http://ports.ubuntu.comxenial InRelease Hit:2 http://ports.ubuntu.comxenial-security InRelease Hit:3 http://apt.armbian.comxenial InRelease Get:4 http://ports.ubuntu.comxenial-updates InRelease [95.7 kB] Hit:5 http://ports.ubuntu.comxenial-backports InRelease Hit:6 https://deb.nodesource.com/node_4.xxenial InRelease Hit:7 https://repos.influxdata.com/ubuntuxenial InRelease Get:8 http://ports.ubuntu.comxenial-updates/universe armhf Packages [289 kB] Fetched 384 kB in 5s (68.2 kB/s) Reading package lists...
