Ok new image is now available for testing.

Please can you guys re-test your installations with the new image and let us know results?

Sorry I meant copying the files from the boot partition.

Hi,
so I tried the new image.
At the end, same result.
But:
on the way of the first boot, when installing the first data, my ssh connection stopped when at :

...
Setting up libcurl3-gnutls:arm64 (7.38.0-4+deb8u5) ...
Setting up apt-transport-https (1.0.9.8.4) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin (2.19-18+deb8u7) ...

I then started another ssh to install MATE & Kodi.

Everything went good. It rebooted. And still ok, but in command line.
Then I installed Audio drivers/lirc and rebooted.
Still ok.

Then I configured it to boot on MATE.
And that's when it crash at reboot. Blank screen.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for testing. I ran a similar test on the image installing a shed loads of programs, runs a treat for me after reboot on 128GB EMMC.


Ok, some questions:
  • No heartbeat after install MATE and rebooting? (flashing blue LED)
  • Do you have the same issues with SD card, or, only with EMMC?
  • Which SD card reader are you using?
  • Have you tried a different EMMC > SD adapter, and, SD card reader when writing?
Lets try another method for image write on EMMC: Can you also link the PSU you purchased on Amazon if possible?

I went too fast on this one.
It seems the networks disconnection would be on my side.

I tried again for 2-3 times. At the end : no problem. Each time, I had a problem with my resolution, disconnecting network, wanted to install everything at once etc. (not a good reference for debug, then. My bad).

The last time, I simply installed things step by step, trying to make it clean.
Much better. For the first time, tho, I installed only MATE for the first round. Usually I installed MATE & Kodi at once. Maybe that's a game changer? (don't see why it could be).

At the end, I rebooted 4 times, just to check if it didn't stall again.

So, good work for this new image : that's a success.

To answer your previous questions and for debug :

Ok, some questions:
1) No heartbeat after install MATE and rebooting? (flashing blue LED)
2) Do you have the same issues with SD card, or, only with EMMC?
3) Which SD card reader are you using?
4) Have you tried a different EMMC > SD adapter, and, SD card reader when writing?[/quote]


1: Heartbeats were on
2: no issue whatsoever on SD card: smoother.
3: it's a sd card adapter usbToSDcard like the one you get with your DSLR
4: no, I only got one of each.

I always use win32diskimage to write the img, and SDformater to format them.

I can add one more positive for the new image. I had been able to get the 139 image kind of running on eMMC. I didn't notice at the time but the 'df' command would just hang, needed a 'ctrl c' to break out of it. Also 'shutdown -h now' would not do anything, rather strange. With the new 143 image everything seems to work as expected. Just curious as to what the issue was with the older image, and why it only seemed to affect eMMC and not a SDHC card?

Thank-you for the fix.
