I am trying to follow the guide for booting from external drive as found here:
The first issue I am having it that reboot from cl does not work correctly, the device is powered on but I get nothing on my monitor. I was able to confirm that it is not just a display issue, as I am unable to ssh into the machine after reboot as well. I read something about fstab configuration but am unable to find the document now.
The second issue is that I followed jamesachambers’ guide to the letter, and I am still booting / from the microsd. Is anyone willing to point me in the right direction, I am admittedly a Linux noob but I understand basic commands/configuration.
Once I get this boot loader flashed, is there a guide you could recommend to getting up and running?
I tried this once before with a debian arm guide I found (I think you made it) but I got stuck at the point of trying to run the distro-fix script. Wondering if that was up to date.
I am finding the same problem rebooting. I connect to the AML-S905X-CC via sh. Most everything seems to work fine including adding non-native apps. However, if I try to reboot, either with reboot or shutdown -h now, the device simply shuts off. If I power cycle the device, it comes alive just fine. As I am often not co-located with the device, it is somewhat inconvenient.
I have a number of computers running Linux, x86_64 and SBCs. Almost all have the command reboot as a link to systemctl. A “which reboot” does not report anything. If I try a “sudo systemctl reboot”, it seems to do a proper reboot on my other computers. On the aml-s905x-cc, it reports an error and does nothing.
