System: NUC DCCP847DYE
Intel® Celeron® CPU 847 @ 1.10GHz
4 GB RAM
Integrated graphics (512 MB RAM dedicated to graphics)

OS: LibreELEC (official) - Version: 8.0.0, kernel: Linux x86 64-bit version 4.9.8

I just upgraded my system from (admittedly VERY out of date) OpenELEC 3.2.4 to LibreELEC 8.0.0. The system is spontaneously rebooting itself. Sometimes it happens after a couple of minutes, and other times it happens almost as soon as the GUI is visible on screen.

It happens whether I am doing things with the system, or whether I just let it sit there. Bottom line is that it won't stay up more than 2-3 minutes.

I have tried removing all addons and userdata, and it still is happening.

I captured the system logs and some crash logs. Strangely, though, I don't have any crash logs for the past couple of hours, despite the fact that it has been constantly "crashing" and rebooting itself. So I have some links to the logs, but I don't have system logs and crash logs from the same "crash cycle".

Logs (as uploaded via LibreElec's pastebin menu option)

Crash logs

I hope somebody has some ideas what might be going on!

Keep the old version. There was a special kernel patch inside to workaround these freezes/reboots on SNB Gen1.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction; at least I know the general cause of the problem. I'd really like to use Kodi 17. Is it possible for me to use the i915.i915_enable_rc6=0 boot option with Kodi 17/LibreELEC 8? Or could I use another linux that might handle the SNB power saving better?

You can try that. I see no point why it should not work.

Doesn't seem to work. I edited /flash/extlinux.conf, rebooted, then looked in dmesg, and the i915.i915_enable_rc6=0 was not shown in the boot command line. I guess this kernel doesn't recognize the option? Unfortunately, my NUC's BIOS doesn't have a setting to control RC6. I guess I have to roll back or bag this system entirely and go to something like an nvidia shield.

Hello,

I'd like to update to the latest Kodi too.

My system : Intel NUC with Celeron N2820. LibreElec 7 with Jarvis (Kodi 16).

What is the reason that causes the crashes ?
Do you think I may have the same problem ?

Thanks for your help.
