Alix apu board having sudden reboots



  • Hi guys,

    I have a working 2.3.4 install working flawlessly. The update to 2.4-RC worked and the basic functionality was there until the board suddenly reboots. No packages installed;

    Just 3 physical interfaces and a couple of VLANs configured. As the box worked before (and still does after the fresh install), I assume it's the 2.4-RC version. I sent in the bug reports via GUI, hoping that they'd help.

    Nothing in "Cryptographic Hardware" which would kill the box. PoE on the switch attached to it was disabled.

    There is no 2.4 for x86 (such as Alix)

    Judging by the stuff pfsense tells me on the dashboard… The box is 64 bit. So there is an Image available.

    Correction: it's an apu.

    Helps to know which HW your have. The original post stated Alix 2D13 - there sure like hell is no 2.4 image for that.

    Clearly not upgraded, posting to wrong board.



  • had to roll back to get the box usable again.

    The submitted crash is in ALTQ, you might try removing the traffic shaper and upgrading and see if it's stable that way.

    That said, I'm running 2.4 on an APU (first gen, not APU2), with traffic shaping on and it doesn't crash there. I'm using PRIQ though, not HFSC.
