[SOLVED upgrading to yaVDR 0.5]Total hang in yaVDR 0.4

Hi.

Sometimes my yaVDR 0.4 suffers a kind of full hang and it does not respond neither with remote control nor network connection (ssh). I only can press the power button till the computer swicht off.

I had watched some logs but I am not able to find anything. Can I show yo some log file (which one?) in order to find out what happens when the computer hangs?

Thanks in advance.

Can you post some log entrys around the crashes? Are there certain actions or conditions that are followed by a crash? If you attach a keyboard to your VDR - does it show a kernel panic if a crash occurs?

Yes (checked), but sometimes I have fails in signal. Can a fail in antenna signal cause a total hang in the computer?

Is the BIOS up to date? You use a 64-bit OS now!

Well, I think so, I bought Xtreamer Ultra in january. I guess 64-bit OS is not a problem for BIOS. The hang up happens once every two weeks.

What type of wireless lan card do you have in your Xtreamer Ultra? I remember that there are a few that can cause hangs in Ubuntu 64-Bit

Hi.

Some aditional clue to avoid the hung up?.

Should I upload another log file to improve the information?

Is the lack of signal the problem to hang up the O.S.?

Thanks

Today I had to reset the computer again. Someone has experienced the same issue?

Yes, same issue here. After 2 or 3 hours, the box hang and I must powercycle the system. My su2300 CPU was overclocked to 1,8 Ghz. Yesterday i reset all BIOS settings to default. I hope this was the clue...
The system logs show nothing out of the ordinary...

Thanks for the answer.

In case you find out something, could you give me some advise in this post?

Well, I have another question. Are there some way to increase the level of log information in order to know exactly what is happening?

Thanks and regards

Have you take a look in /var/log/massages?

one question... can you open a ssh connection when the box hang up?

By pieces, as jack the ripper said...

1) /var/log/messages does not exist in my yaVDR-0.4. I do not know if it is possible to activate that log.

2) When the box hang up I can not open a ssh connection. In fact, if I connect a usb mouse/keyboard, it does not work neither. I lose absolutely control of the computer.

yaVDR runs on Ubuntu (Natty), that is not any old version of Debian.
What you mean is

Source code

/var/log/syslog

Same problem as before - frontend 2 times out while tuning to required channel - are those DVB-T Sticks you are using (pctv nanoStick)? Do you use any "evil" plugins? Does this occur after the first time an epg-scan/update ran (a full syslog may show this)?

Hi.

Yes the tunners are "pctv nanostick". They worked fine in yaVDR-0.3a. But I have sometimes a problem with the dvb signal (I think that the lack of signal should not hang up the whole computer).

The plugins I use are:
- filebrowser
- rssreader
- scheduler

How can I increase the level of log for syslog?
