I grabbed a recent image (cat /etc/dogtag is BeagleBoard.org Debian Image 2016-01-24) and it is Jessie 8. One of the issues I am working is that I cannot restart or shutdown from CLI with
shutdown -r now
shutdown -h now
What happens when I try to restart is my putty SSH continues to wait and does not lose connection, and when I look at my BBB (version C) the heartbeat keeps beating. I have to manually shut it down and reboot. Halt is the same thing.
I never had this problem with previous versions of Debian. I did see something about a patch here… chroot: make sure to patch systemd in console images but I cannot find scripts/chroot.sh so not sure what to patch.
This is important to me, because I often shell into the BBB from remote and would like control over reboots from that remote location.
I hope I didn’t ask again what was already posted. I searched but all I found was… “it doesn’t work” without elaborating.
Thank you for your time!
