Hi,

I'm running stock RT-N66U (3.0.0.4.382_51641-g46d2311) and recently I'm getting this error every few seconds,

Dec 7 17:01:02 kernel: Argh. No free space left for GC. nr_erasing_blocks is 0. nr_free_blocks is 0. (erasableempty: yes, erasingempty: yes, erasependingempty: yes)

I tried to delete files in jffs2 but it seems like it is currently in read-only state.

I tried reformatting jffs2 using the commands I found in this forum posted by Merlin himself and the error disappeared. After some times, this error will reappear again.

I can ignore the error in the log, but I also noted that the unit would reset itself every once in a while and I'm not sure whether the 2 are related to each other.

Anyone can help with this?
