Now I am loading my Raspberry Pi with a fair few tasks – squid proxy, bridged wireless connection, samba server – I am having some stability issues.
Essentially I am having to reboot it every day or so, as it seems to drop off the network.
I run it headless, so I cannot tell exactly what is up, but all the lights remain on, so my inclination is to think that – with a USB wireless dongle and a 1TB drive hanging off it, it has become very sensitive to spikes and troughs in my domestic supply (it’s also running off an extension cord as opposed to a socket directly on the ring main).
I have seen some people say this is not too uncommon and a UPS of some sort is the answer.
