Post Fit-PC2 occasional lockups

Thank you for the information. I copied the script and am now recording cpu temp.
I currently do have a heatsink on top of the fitpc heard that helps.

You mention network related lock-ups this did seem to happen when I had
a remote mounted disk and was installing a virtual machine over the nfs network.
I am running linux kernel what version of the kernel resolves
the network issues?

thanks in advance

Hi Jeff,

Please find the engineer suggestions:

Missing thermal pad that causes overheated CPU is suspected.
You can monitor CPU temperature like described below and give us some feedback.

Also we know about network related lock-ups.
This is software related and you need to try the latest Fedora with the latest kernel.

Please proceed the communication on fit-PC forum.

Best Regards,



Recently the Fit-PC2 has been locking up when cpu util is high. I am running
Fedora 14. From previous linux experience I have not seen lockups unless there is some type
of hardware issue. Is there any diagnostics I can run to determine if there may be some hardware
issue.. It might be possible the faulty power supply cause some type of intermittent damage.

Thanks in advance

Can you please try for test proposes to use one of the supported Ubuntu/Linux Mint, to check if the lockups persists? It's looks like specific software issue

Network related lock-ups are caused by bug in r8169 module, fixed in mainline kernel since 3.2.0.
Also you can try to download driver from Realtek website and compile vs your existent kernel.

Please read also viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2383. Users confirm better performance with 3.0.0 and 3.1.0 kernels.
