Full reset following update ?

Hi John,

I'm using the Beagle GPIO ports to switch antennas.

I have a problem in that when the KiWi does an update the GPIO ports are not reinitialised and the GPIO switching stops working. 

I then have to manually restart the Beagle before the GPIO switching will function again.

Because of this I have now turned off automatic updates and perform them manually during the day so that I can do a restart at the same time.

I wonder if there is a way around this, or alternatively if it would be possible to include code to initiate a Beagle restart at the end of an update ?

Maybe this would also help reduce the NTP crash problem by means of occasional restarts ?

  • That's actually not a bad idea. After running for long periods of time most operating systems tend to accumulate bad behavior (memory leaks, NTP problems as you mention). A reboot doesn't take all that much longer than a restart. Although in another forum thread people are reporting Ethernet initialization problems on restart, although it isn't clear if this is reboot or power-on related.
