I have setup my OSPi v1.4 with a raspberry pi and am having problems with the raspberry pi crashing at the start of scheduled water times. I have 2 sprinklers hooked up to the system, and when I use manual mode I can turn these on/off and leave watering with no problems. I only encounter this issue when scheduling the jobs.
I was originally running Pidora; but am now using the pre-configured SD card (I have updated the OS & OSPi packages) and an alternate Raspberry pi board to rule out the OS or hardware (at least the Pi)…still same issue.
Raspi Model B
OSPi v1.4 board
Running pre-configured sd card (raspbian + OSPI software) with all latest updates applied to OS and software
After finally getting some time to try and troubleshoot the issue, it looks like the issue might be WiFi not reconnecting. I’m trying out this solution to turn off powersaving and also to force reconnect of wireless interface if it loses connection: http://itsbrent.net/2014/05/fixing-raspberry-pi-wifi-dropping/
