Kernel panics
#1
Hi,

For at least six months, my PBPro too often freezes up.
From the power led blinking to amber, I get that this is a kernel panic.

Do any of you know how to manage, if not prevent, these kernel panics?

Cheers,
Solostian

Which distro and version are you using?
Which apps are you using?
Do you run from the eMMC, or NVMe (or perhaps even SD)?

I'm using the stock Manjaro the unit came with.
Since receiving it, I've added a NVMe drive to which I've relocated /home.

I'm using it as a sidekick to my company-issued work laptop.
When not reading my personal documentation or browsing Stack Overflow, it is mainly playing back music from Youtube.
I'd say that 90% of kernel panics occur when Youtube is running.

Have you applied the Manjaro updates?
Which browser are you using?

I am always up to date and using Firefox.

Could you try with a different browser?

Do you also see the freezes when you boot from the eMMC or a micro SD card (without using the NVMe drive)?
Sometimes the Pinebook Pro can't supply enough power to the NVMe drive.
Some won't even start, but I have seen it happen that a NVMe drive seems to work at start, but fail later on because of power issues.

I will try a different browser and report back.

I too have been getting the kernel panics. I have the NVMe adaptor fitted, but no SSD is installed. I've not been able to pinpoint what causes this. It appears to be random. I'm also using Manjaro ARM.

One thing that I noticed:
When I pacman -Syu and there is a new linux kernel, and then I do a warm reboot, then the system will hang at some point (usually happens while browsing the web).
A cold reboot seems to fix the problem.

I have installed Vivaldi to test a different browser.
I only got a single panic attack while streaming from YouTube.
I'll have to keep testing in order to reproduce the bug a few more times.

I have no memory of any panic attack other than while YouTube streaming.

The comment I've seen regarding the potential shortage of internal power when you have a secondary NVMe drive is interesting.
Isn't YouTube caching its streams in /home ?
