  1. As the SSD was quite old. I removed it from the cubietruck. Added it to a PC... but no response. I had a spare SSD available and added that one to the Cubietruck. [ 2238.419293] ata1.00: configured for UDMA/133 [ 2238.419339] ata1: EH complete [ 2238.420061] scsi 0:0:0:0: Direct-Access ATA OCZ-AGILITY3 2.25 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5 [ 2238.425685] sd 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 0 [ 2238.426190] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 117231408 512-byte logical blocks: (60.0 GB/55.9 GiB) [ 2238.426288] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write Protect is off [ 2238.426298] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Mode Sense: 00 3a 00 00 [ 2238.426439] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA [ 2238.428526] sda: sda1 sda2 sda3 [ 2238.430844] sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] Attached SCSI disk So pretty much I have to guess my old SSD went DEAD.
  2. Today I re-installed my Cubietruck as it was really outdated. It had: Linux cubietruck 3.4.105-cubieboard #8 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 23 06:11:42 EST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux still running without issues. I reformatted the SD card with: ARMBIAN 5.65 stable Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.78-sunxi Configured everything and now I want to move the data to my SSD. (just as I had before) However dmesg shows me: cubietruck ata1: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 300) What did i miss??
  3. Hi. I've been using my Cubietruck for some time now without any issues. It is not directly connected to the outside world and is only used for some home automation. It boots via SD -> the SSD and has an internal battery as UPS. Really happy with it. Last year I migrated from Wheezy to Jessi so now I am at: ARMBIAN Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.4.109-sunxi I still receive the updates via ap-get update && upgrade, however should I be updating major like kernel? As this thing is used for home automation I am not looking forward to large down times. ;-) tnx for your honest responses.
  4. Thanks for all your hard work. The system has been running for several years now and I thought.. Maybe it is time for some big maintenance.. updating kernel. I already updated from debian -> jessie. The system now says: "Linux version 3.4.109-sunxi (root@production) (gcc version 4.8.2 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.8.2-16ubuntu4)" However the update && upgrade I normally use do the following: Reading package lists... Done Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade... Done 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. So it seems up to date.. Tnx for your help.
  5. Aha, maybe updating while booting from SD is not correctly supported by the script? As my log shows only a few entries and the removal of the files: linux-image-3.4.105-cubieboard linux-headers-3.4.105-cubieboard linux-firmware-image-3.4.105-cubieboard Removing linux-firmware-image-3.4.105-cubieboard (3.2) ... dpkg: warning: while removing linux-firmware-image-3.4.105-cubieboard, directory '/lib/firmware' not empty so not removed Maybe best not to reboot now
