:uk:/:us: Yunohost doesn’t boot anymore

My YunoHost server

Hardware: Internet Cube (LIME 1) with VPN
YunoHost version: not sure / should be the latest in july 2020
I have access to my server : file system on the SD card / physically to the olimex
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : yes
If yes, please explain: It’s pretty hard to explaint it fully, but I have this server since 2015, so there is a lot of things I did modifiy during theses years in order to make things work (before Yunohost corrected it). Lastly, thanks to the diagnosis tool, I did edit a few to get back in the normal installation. I was as close as possible to its recommendations. I guess it’s good to have all of it in mind.

Description of my issue

On july 16th, my cube got down and nothing happened anymore at boot (it didn’t even appeared on the local network). The LIME 1 card looked like it oddly reacted when plugged in (the orange LED didn’t blink anymore), and the SD card looked fully functionnal, so I decided to get a new LIME 1 in order to make it easier for me and not have to make a new install on a LIME 2.
I now have the new LIME 1. It seems to react a bit differently in terms of LED blinking, but in the end, I have nothing more once the SD is in.
While, again, the SD nothing’s corrupted looking at fsck, and nothing is on readonly mode.
So I am confused : it doesn’t look corrupted.
I have been able to get a HDMI cable that I plugged on my videoprojector (I have nothing better to use next to the internet box and the cube). It writes “no signal”.
The ext4 partition of the Cube ain’t full. There are a bit more of 2.5Gb of free space.

I really don’t know where to check to get deeper, does anyone have any idea?
I can access to every logs, that all stopped the same day : july 16th. In the ones I’ve read (syslog & kern) I haven’t seen any error correlated to the situation, but I don’t know where to look and what for.


:fr: Yunohost doesn’t boot

Mon serveur YunoHost

Matériel : Brique Internet avec VPN
Version de YunoHost : pas certain, normalement la dernière quand nous étions en juillet 2020
J’ai accès à mon serveur : système de fichiers sur la carte SD / physiquement à la olimex
tes-vous dans un contexte particulier ou avez-vous effectué des modifications particulières sur votre instance ? : oui
Si oui, expliquer: C’est assez dur d’être exhaustif, mais j’ai ce serveur depuis 2015, donc il y a beaucoup de choses que j’ai modifiées durant ces années pour que tout fonctionne (avant que Yunohost ne le corrige). Dernièrement, avec l’aide de l’outil de diagnostic, j’ai pu revenir un peu vers l’installation normale. J’étais aussi proche que ça m’était possible de ses recommandations. Je pense que ça reste bien d’avoir ça à l’esprit.

Description du problème

Le 16 juillet, ma brique est tombée down et plus rien au boot (même pas d’apparition en réseau local). La carte LIME 1 avait l’air de réagir bizarrement au branchement (la LED orange ne clignotait plus), et la carte SD semblait parfaitement fonctionnelle, donc j’ai décidé d’acheter une nouvelle LIME 1 pour me simplifier les choses et ne pas avoir à refaire une installation sur une LIME 2.
J’ai désormais la nouvelle LIME 1. Elle semble réagir un peu différemment en termes de clignotement des LED, mais au final, je n’ai pas plus de résultat une fois la carte SD dedans.
Or, sur la carte SD, rien de corrompu d’après fsck, et rien n’est en lecture seule.
Donc je suis confus : elle n’a pas l’air corrompue.
J’ai pu mettre la main sur un câble HDMI que j’ai branché à mon vidéoprojecteur (je n’ai rien de plus pratique sous la main près de la box et de la brique). Il indique “aucun signal”.
La partition ext4 de la Brique n’est pas pleine, il reste un peu plus de 2.5Go.

Je ne sais pas bien où regarder pour avance, est-ce que quelqu’un a des idées ?
Je peux accéder à tous les logs, qui se sont arrêtés le même jour : le 16 juillet. Dans ceux que j’ai regardé (syslog & kern) je n’ai vu aucune erreur semblant liée à la situation, mais je ne sais ni ou ni quoi chercher.

Wokay I deleted that because it contained a cleartext password and not sure that’s relevant

What’s confusing is :

  • the system stopped on july 16
  • you tried booting
  • but nothing new shows up in kern.log

Which tends to indicate it’s a hardware or boot issue (e.g. in grub or whatever is used before the kernel actually takes over the system) - oooooor maybe check if there’s a file called dmesg ? (But that should be pretty similar to kern.log)

I had a few issue in the past where my ARM board wasn’t booting just because there was some dust or whatever between the SD card and SD connector … but maybe you already checked that ?

Si tu utilises une batterie vérifie que tu l’as bien branché au bon endroit (et non pas sur le power sata, sur les cartes olimex c’est le même type de connecteur donc facile de se tromper).

Sorry for the delay of my answer…

Any way to identify and, if necessary, fix this?

Yeah, it’s empty :(.

I did not, but now I did (on the SD card at least). It would be surprising to have the same dust problem on two different boards, wouldn’t it?
Do you have any tips to get everything clean btw?

Je n’utilise pas de batterie, la brique est directement sur secteur :(.

Imho le plus simple pour investiguer serait d’avoir un cable USB<->Serial pour voir ce que la carte raconte pendant le boot … (Si tu n’as pas de tel cable mais un arduino, y’a aussi moyen de bricoler pour le transformer en USB<->Serial) :confused:

Tu peux aussi essayer de vérifier ta carte: la mienne se montait sur mon laptop et j’avais l’impression de pouvoir écrire dedans (avec dd, ou même en créant un fichier). Mais en la démontant et la remontant je me suis aperçu que ce qui était écrit disparaissait (et que donc c’était juste en cache mais que c’était jamais écris physiquement…).

En regardant avec un arduino, on a pu voir que évidement ça bloquait le démarrage du système. Là aussi rien sur l’écran hdmi.

(Beh il disait que fsck ne rapporte pas d’erreur alors la carte a l’air good :s )
