3.5.3 needs to be rebooted every couple hours


#1

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?


#2

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

dmesg


#4

I don’t see any error msgs.

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


#5

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.
