Are you using the last beta image and it freezes? I have tried the last wheezy image from here http://www.linuxsystems.it/2012/06/debi ... mal-image/ and it freezes, even with rpi-update... If the new official beta does not freezes is a good development...

Has anyone tried kernel images from here:
http://www.bootc.net/projects/raspberry-pi-kernel/ ??

Here http://chri.stophr.be/node/228 it says that it solves the freezing issues... I have not tried (and I am a little frustrated to try now...)

I had the same freezing problems with Debian; since I installed Raspbian-hexxeh the freezes are over. I am using Transmission and no crashes or freezing since last friday, and before that (when using Debian) I should reset the Pi every 15 minutes.

uurkul, could you post a "uname -a" of your Pi? or just "uname -r", to see the kernel version you are using.
Have you updated your Pi firmware (rpi-update or manually)?
Have you updated the sw through apt?


Thanks in advance.

OK, as soon as I get back to my home I will post that.
I have updated the SW via apt-get update, but not the FW.

PD: because of your nick, I suppose you are spanish. Greetings from Cadiz ! :D

The only change I made was set the value "vm.min_free_kbytes" to 16000, following some advices that I found in this forum. Before of that I made some tests with other values (32678, 8192...), but always freeze.

I´m running off a 1200mAh power supply, in case that matters...

What you are saying makes absolutely no sense. I'm sorry if I sound rude or something, but people should stop spamming around saying something is solved and whatsoever without knowing a little about what is happening. That value is an allocation to the kernel in kbytes, as the name says. If it is too low the kernel in some situations might get out of memory if you're using a lot of it in other tasks.. so, this trick appeared because the default value was dinamically calculated by some script/kernel/don't_know and it was too low, so there was a recommendation to avoid the panics to set this value with a fixed number so it always has a higher value. Now what you are saying is that, 16000kbytes(~16MB) solves the problem, but if it's higher it doesn't! Makes no sense as you can see.

I think it was a mistake to make this big batches of rpi's to everyone who wanted them, instead of starting with a minor group of more informed people to debug and solve this type of issues. I'm not saying I'm very knowledge on this matter, but at least I try to test to the limit everything and try to understand what's happening.

I'll keep reading this thread and some more other stuff about this issue, but to be honest I'll stop testing every hint that appears since most of the time is only smoke and no fire.

Sorry if I were to aggressive, but this just annoys me.

I understand all that you said, but the fact is that the last week I was one of the pissed off users that claims for a solution for the freezing problem under heavy eth/usb traffic, and since the installation of the hexxeh-raspbian distro my Transmission-daemon works like a charm.

And of course, maybe this parameter did nothing at all, but I only sumarized what I did. Sorry if there was some misunderstanding, caused by my lack of knowledgement or by my poor english :(

By the way, my "uname -a" is:


Linux raspbian 3.1.9+ #52 Tue May 8 23:49:32 BST 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux


, and in fact transmission-daemon is still downloading at maximum speed (~800kb for a 4 mb. spanish connection :D )

Hi everyone. I´m going to upload this afternoon my own raspbian img from my own 2gb SD card for everyone who wants to test it.

Please consider this part of my therapy, because half of the forum thinks I´m crazy :?

i'm using now the uukrul img and ... works! i don't know why but works. The only thing i don't understand is that i had to change the name of the interface from eth0 to eth1 in /etc/network/interfaces
I'm trying with 5 of the top 100 of piratebay magnets ... i can't believe, why?

In order to not to changue the eth0 connection you must erase a temporary file (explained here: http://rm-rf.es/debian-eth0-error-while ... ch-device/)

I didn´t tell before, but user is "root" and pass is "hexxeh"

The static IP configured in eth0 is "192.168.1.29", netmask "255.255.255.0", gateway "192.168.1.1"

Have you tried rtorrent? Is it working with an external USB hard drive?
