Been running the Bionic based image on the internal storage of a few Joggler's (reflashed with 4th May image as a latest). That image seems to run very well from the internal storage.
Stability has been very good in various use cases with one exception, I mostly run one of the units as a SqueezePlay box with a USB DAC/AMP connected to the internal USB pins on the Joggler (not the side plug) and on hard wired ethernet.
This unit has been running your v3 SqueezePlay OS for many years with very little issue however after reflashing with the Bionic based image and running a
along with the other basic setup tasks leads to a great 7.8 SqueezePlay system that will run happily for about 36-48 hours before SqueezePlay crashes out leaving the panel showing a shell prompt for the squeezeplay user (green on white) as that is all that is left for X to show
SSH is fine, nothing obvious in the logs and I am carrying on digging on the chance is it something specific to my unit (it is hacked up a lot).
Currently I just sort with a little hacky watchdog on another box restarts X it if it notices that the player has vanished from LMS (ok, not going to win awards for clean).
Code: Select all
sudo service startx stop
sudo service startx start
That works well, so it seems to prove that the hardware is solid no reboot was involved and no devices have vanished or anything like that.
This post is really more to flag it up or ask if there is somewhere specific I should be looking to diagnose beyond the usual logs. Was pondering wrapping the load of squeezeplay to reload it if it dies without warning but not sure about the sanity of that.
Thanks again for all the work on this.
