Banana Pi running 5.90 random freezes & workaround


Recommended Posts

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="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" -- 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.

Hi @ww9rivers,


I am still running Kernel 4.11.5 because of random freezes with newer kernels.

The workaround has kept the box up for 11 days now


is your Banana Pi still up and running without freezes? Uptime is 4 weeks now, isn’t it?


How exactly did you issue the ping command so that it kept running after logging out? With nohup or through a cronjob on reboot?
