Orangepi One falling back to date Tue 13 Nov 1979 05:23:13 PM CET


Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have an Orangepi One which fails after running for a certain time. In the failed "state" pinging it still works, but SSH connections to the Orangepi or from the Orangepi to the Server via Autossh won't work any more. A PHP application running on it is still working. It looks like the issue is that it winds back the time to something ridiculous. Hard reset with pulling Power fixes this for again a certain time till it happens again.

 

I wrote a script which runs every Minute via Cronjob and logs the current time to a file. Before the rewind already something weird is happening. The cronjob is executed twice on 04.40. I have no idea what is happening there and if it is related to the rewinding.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

Hi,

   My orange pi PC and orange pi one used to crash like this.  It was fixed by running a more recent linux kernel, I recall it being stable in linux kernel 5.7 and above. 

 

From your pastelog, i see you are running an older version of armbian and using 5.4 linux kernel.  My crashing back to 197X year problem went away I think after upgrading to 5.7 linux kernel or above.  It used to hang and reboot into  year 197X every 3 to 17 days.  I can confirm fixed cpu speed made it stable but with the current mainline kernel there is no need for this anymore.

I only encountered the 197X issue on my allwinner h3 based devices.  I have

1X orange pi pc (h3)

2X orange pi one (h3)

3X banana pi M1 (a20)

1X orange pi PC 2 (h5)

 

The h3 devices were crashing to 197X and I used to reboot them daily.

They are all working fine now with 5.8 kernels and stable.

Little Update from my side. Had the probably same issue today on a OrangePi PC. SSH wasn't working any more, Ping worked. After Hard Reset everything fine again. This Board is at another Geo Location with different Power Supply. I have now installed the logging Cronjob + Telnet to check if it is really this issue if it happens again.. (This Board had 5.4.20-sunxi #20.02.1 installed, will update now)
