...actually, its not a BananaPI, its a BPI-R1, but I'm fairly sure most of you use the BananaPI and Pro models so...I just wanted to catch your attention P|
Anyway, my SoC started crashing on me, out of the blue...
I suspect the problem started after I installed hostapd and turned my device into an access point BUT, I'm having trouble pinpointing the problem...
I couldn't find anything in the logfiles AND, when this happened, the terminal would freeze and I couldn't even take a look at the screen because the "terminal screen saver" would turn off my screen...
So far, here's what I tried:
- I made rsyslog log all kern.* messages to /dev/tty6
- and I turned off the terminal's screen saver: Copy the Code
- root@appliance:~# cat /etc/rsyslog.conf | grep kern
- $ModLoad imklog # provides kernel logging support
- kern.* -/var/log/kern.log
- kern.* /dev/tty6
This allows me to see kernel messages on tty6 and keeps the screen from turning blank BUT, I just experienced another crash and could NOT find anything in the screen... Copy the Code
- root@appliance:~# grep BLANK_TIME /etc/kbd/config
Does anybody have any thoughts on how I can further debug this? Can I, maybe, recompile the kernel with some more debugging features, so I can see kernel panic outputs or something?
Its the first time I've seen a Linux system crash without throwing out a kernel panic of some sort...
