I’m trying to migrate my plots from the plotter to a 8GB Pi 4 with Ubuntu Server 21.04 for farming, but I’m not even able to get the farmer running without any of the drives connected.
When I first start the farmer everything seems to be fine, but then it quickly becomes unresponsive while trying to sync. It takes about 2 hours to get a response from
chia farm summary at all, and then it usually says “Exception from ‘full node’”, and shows farming status as “Not available”. I copied the blockchain file from my other machine, so there shouldn’t be much to sync. The whole system becomes gradually more unresponsive too, and kernel messages like
Tainted: G C E 5.11.0-1017-raspi #18-Ubuntu
keep showing up until I kill the farmer.
I noticed copying the blockchain file to the Pi took fairly long, could slow SD card speeds be causing this kind of problem? I’m using a standard SanDisk 64GB card, not the Extreme Pro version.
