I received my 2 “Le Potato” board this morning and am trying out a few things now to get a grip on the differences between a Raspberry Pi and this SBC.
I got some issues to get the headless setup up and running, especially with the new mechanism introduced by the Raspberry Pi organisation (having to have a
userconf.txt file with
name:encrypted_password) but in the end I got one board up and running already.
I see the red power led, the green ??? led constantly lighting up (what is this led representing, drive activity?) and the blue led giving me the heartbeat (representing the load of the system) rate.
However, when I execute the
sudo reboot command, the system doesn’t reboot. I don’t see the blinking blue led coming up again after a while, can’t connect with Putty through SSH and so on. I have to physically remove the power and power up the board again. Any reason for this behaviour?
PS: Used the 2022-09-22-raspbian-bullseye-arm64-lite+aml-s905x-cc.img.xz image for the “Le Potato” board.
