Odroid C2 : System hang while installing 'cmake'

Post by andy_pevy »

Hi,

I need to use cmake to build a radio package but when I do : apt-get install cmake it responds with :

From this point on the system appears to be dead.

I can start another ssh session and keys are echoed back but I cannot
get htop or top to run.
However, 'ps ax' runs and the last few lines displayed are :

I am running from a reasonably fast 32Gb MicroSD card.

This behaviour is repeatable.

The S/W is :
V145 | oDroid C2 (aarch64)

The C2 is powered by one of the official PSU Units.

It works perfectly on a RPi v3.

Any ideas please ?.

Thanks,
Andy Pevy

Could possibly be the apt/cache is corrupt.

Try clearing apt cache and package:

Code: Select all

apt-get purge cmake
apt-get clean
rm -R /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf
apt-get update
Reinstall

Code: Select all

apt-get install cmake
If problems persist, it may be a hardware issue. As your using the official PSU we should assume thats fine, but lets check SD card for any errors on filesystem:

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep mmc

Hi Daniel,

Thanks, that did the trick.

The first line, 'apt-get purge cmake' caused it to go comatose again and was unresponsive to
^C or ^Z.

So I entered the other commands in another terminal session and I now have cmake working.

Thanks.

Interesting that this apparent lockup was from a clean install and was reproducible on
2 different sdcards.

Hi Andy,

Yep strange, although, I cant reproduce it here on EMMC or any of my SD's.

I'd highly recommend running a full format on the SD card, prior to writing the DietPi image. This will completely zero/reset the card, and has provided our users that experienced similar issues, a fix:
Section: Before writing this image, lets also complete a full format on the SD card:
