3.5.3 needs to be rebooted every couple hours

Rebuilt my SD card to 3.5.3.

Now I need to reboot the raspberry every couple of hours.

Any ideas I can check out?

I did some searching on the net to find out how to boot my RPi daily. Many ways to do it I guess but I went with this one in a terminal window:

sudo crontab -e

0 3 * * * /sbin/shutdown -r now

Which reboots it at 3am daily. I think there were a few steps to save the crontab information but I cant remember off hand.

Do you know what part of piaware is failing? You can do this by checking the log files.

cat /var/log/piaware.log
cat /var/log/syslog

and maybe

I don’t see any error msgs.

Did downgrade back to 3.5.1 and it appears to be working ok for now.

Upgrading an existing install someties breaks things.

In such case, the cleanest and headache-free option is to format microSD card, and download & write latest sd card image (3.5.3).

I usually rebuild the card.

The downgrade to 3.5.1 is working fine.
