I have a Beaglebone Black, on which I used a microSD card to install the image “bone-debian-7.5-2014-05-14-2gb.img”
All appeared to be fine, I successfully expanded the partition size to use the full card capacity, and configured the system to appear on the network, with full DNS and internet access working.
After an apt-get update/upgrade, which did not show any errors and downloaded/installed ~84 packages without incident, I run the command sudo reboot.
The system never comes back. The lights flicker for a second when power is plugged in, but then they stop and the CPU LED stays on full, no activity at all on the others.
If I remove the microSD card and allow the board to boot off it’s eMMC storage, then it all fires up just fine with default settings.
Additional: First time I tried this, I actually tried an install straight after the upgrade, and it complained about the file system being read-only. Then I rebooted, and it didn’t come back.
Does a package in the latest repo updates break the Beaglebone? Is there anything in the latest updates that creates some kind of boot-up prompt that I cannot see via SSH?
Any help is appreciated.
