Rebooted from webpage - now not responding


#1

Tried to access my PiAware feeder from my lan and couldn’t even though it was uploading data to FlightAware without any problems and was responding to ping. Sent a reboot command from my FlightAware web page and now it’s completely unresponsive. Power cycle didn’t help. Time to go retrieve it from the attic.

In case I need to make a new SD card install, how do I keep my existing station ID on FlightAware?

Edit: Got it from the attic and powered it up with a keyboard and monitor attached. During bootup I get the “PiAware 3.5.0 is starting” splash screen but then I get the prompt (initramfs) and that’s it. Anyone know what I need to do to get this running again?

Edit: Found the info I needed about starting up a new build and retain my history. Looks like the SD card went bad. Bringing up a new install now.

your diagnosis is correct and the cure too :grin:
had same about a month ago…when it gets stuck at ‘initramfs’ or ‘crng’
and e2fsck fails to correct the issue,
best to get a new SD. data still can be scavenged from the old one.
