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=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.

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
