Since you know the PID of the offending process (4076), you should find out what started it. Run ps -aef --forest (as root, because it's a root process) and search for the PID in the process tree. The keyword automake suggests it could be a software package being installed from source code. Unless you observe this behavior right after a reboot, check out ...

As I understand, spi.xfer2() takes a list that includes a COMMAND WORD, ADDRESS (24-bit by default), and DATA, respectively. According to Micron N25Q256A datasheet, one has to send the most significant address byte A[23:16] first and least significant address byte A[7:0] last (as opposed to the program that I took as a reference): I've also noticed that you ...

A 560mAh 3.7V battery contains 2.07Wh of energy. Given you'll need a boost converter that might be 85% efficient, that leaves you with 1.76Wh of energy. A RPi operates at 5V, and the amount of current drawn depends on the model and what it is doing. Around 400mAh is typical for a Pi3B not doing much, so that's 2W (5V * 0.4A). So your battery is going to last ...

If we ignore Peukert's Law for the moment, each one of your batteries (3.7 volt 560 mAH lithium batteries) will run one RPi4b for at most 1 hour. Let's do the math: RPi4B power consumption ~ 500mA (if lightly loaded) Time = 560mAh/500mA = 1.12 hours But this is unrealistically optimistic because: You'll need a boost converter voltage regulator to get the ...

If that is a rechargeable lithium, something like https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1PCS-5V-Micro-USB-1A-18650-Lithium-Battery-Charging-V0Q3-Charger-To-Board/402292719717?hash=item5daa83c065:g:uX0AAOSwx79evOvj should do the job. I've bought some from one supplier (if you look around Ebay there are some providing a pack of 5) and they produce the expected 5V output ...
