Rockpro64 not stable... crashes now and then.
#1
I was so happy that I got the Rockpro64 working including Wifi. But I soon found it's not stable at all. I was listening to some internet radio with SMplayer and suddenly I heard the Rockpro crashed and couple seconds later screen went total black. Only thing I could do is remove the power supply and put it back to reboot.

First I thought maybe SMplayer was fooling around but even on a new fresh reboot I left the rockpro days on to see what will happen. And sometimes after couple days it crashed again. And onetime I had it for 11 days up no problem until it went black again. 

This is my Rockpro version:
Linux rockpro64 4.4.167-1213-rockchip-ayufan-g34ae07687fce #1 SMP Tue Jun 18 20:44:49 UTC 2019 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Anyone also had these kind of problems?  Huh

In the future I would like to run small things 24/7 on the Rockpro and need a stable one for that.

Thanks Smile

Nope: I have been running my RockPro64 for nearly 18 months now as my daily driver. It runs 24/7 and while it hasn't been flawless I have figured the 2 or 3 hiccups I have had in that time were more likely power (my mains can be iffy) or bluetooth (my keyboard & mouse are cheapo and oftern play up!) related. (I don't have the Pine WiFi/Bluetooth - my bluetooth is a cheapo USB dongle.)


Code:
$ uname -a
Linux rpro64.dukla.net 4.4.138-1100-rockchip-ayufan-g95cecee47f40 #1 SMP Sat Sep 29 15:43:04 UTC 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
* ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, SM961 128GB NVMe for rootfs, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now eoan, Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.

Thanks for your reply. Which distribution do you have? Might try the one you are using and see if I get the same issues. 

Can't imagine my powersupply would be the problem. It's a beefy meanwell one.

I start with a basic ayufan release - bionic minimal rockpro64 arm64 from here.

No I don't have eMMC. Last week I also thought maybe the SD card I'm using is a but wonky. Havn't touched the Pine that much last weeks and it has an uptime for 17 days so far. Maybe a software update I did maybe solved it's problem. Will let you guys now when it didn't Wink
