I have successfully been using OctoPi for approximately 1 year. But today I faced a major issue...
My printer suddently stopped printing.... The hotend was hot, the bed also, but the carrier was no more moving. I tried to connect through the web interface (on my local network) and faced a Time Out error... I tried ssh... Same error...
So I had no ther choice than taking the power off the PI... And when I plugged the power back in, the PI was no more able to boot. After few checks, the SD Card is dead (à 32 Gb SanDisk SDHC Class 10...)
After discussing with some friends, this kind of issue is quite know on the PI, because of Raspibian (reading and writting many many files...).
So I got 2 question for you:
- Do you think this crash might be linked to the Octopi behavior (or am I just unlucky )?
- Do you think we can transfer folders in RAM for the Octopi?
regarding the second question, and to give you more details, I found out a "proposal" of solution, using tmpfs (so using the RAM instead of the SD for some folders). The idea would be to change the tmpfs this way:
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,size=10m 0 0 tmpfs /var/tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,size=10m 0 0 tmpfs /var/log tmpfs defaults,noatime,nosuid,mode=0755,size=10m 0 0
It might already be the case, but as my SD has crashed (and I do not have another in backup), I am waiting for the RMA of SanDisk to provide a new one....
Thanks for your feedbacks on that, and have a great day
