Manick02 New Member Posts: 1

We followed the below links and setup -

We setup Ubuntu 16.04 desktop.
When we try to get into Ubuntu and when system tries showing desktop we get crash everytime.
IF we try to get into Ubuntu in Recovery mode it does not crash

Can someone help in how to get to know the reason of the crash and find a way to fix it?

    Were you able to find the reason for those crashes? I am having the same problem with the upsquareds we have.

    What Power Supply are you using to power the board?

    What version of the BIOS is installed on your system?

    Hi. I'm facing the exact same issue on Ubuntu 18.04.
    I have an up squared board connected to a Loomo device outputting 24V 1A, which I've stepped down to 5V. So the board should be getting around 4.8A (max).

    I have the latest UEFI BIOS that I downloaded from here.

    I faced a similar issue while using the UP board earlier too, and setting it to a lower resolution helped it stay stable. I tried to do that with this, but it crashes before I can set anything :|. Works fine on recovery mode.

    Also, I'm SSH'ing into the board now, without a display and it still restarts randomly after a few minutes. So it clearly isn't a display issue this time.

    I also installed the latest kernel following instructions described here.

    It seems to me the power supply is not providing current to the board correctly (not handling spikes or stable enough).

    I would suggest to try one of our tested PSU (5V6A) to see if you experience the same issue as we are not seeing that on our testing.
