My Banana Pi won’t reboot; there is no response after I send the reboot command (or “shutdown now” or “echo b > /proc/sysrq-triggerclient_loop”), so I have to physically reset the power every time I need to restart it.
I installed Arch following these instructions: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Banana_Pi. It thus has the latest kernel and vanilla u-boot.
I don’t know if anything would show up on the screen, it’s in a remote location and not plugged in to one (I have to wait for them to get home to reboot it).
Everything else is functional (SATA, ETH0) except the wifi but I don’t particularly need it.
