  1. Well I have an answer to my last question. About 15 or 20 times . Flasher images wouldn't work either, I had to manually write an image to eMMC while booted form the uSD.
  2. Hi, I'm new to the BBB but have some prior Linux experience. Since I got my BBB last week I've played around with several distros and the one I like the best so far is the Debian, which I got from here: http://beagleboard.org/latest-images The only problem I'm having with it is that shutdown and reboot do not work. If I issue the the shutdown -h now command, it sends the message to whatever terminals are connected, but then nothing happens. Examining /var/log/messages I find this line right after the shutdown command is logged: beaglebone systemd-initctl[3125]: Received environment initctl request. This is not implemented in systemd. I've done some googling and found lots of reports of people having this same issue in older releases of Debian, mostly on PCs, but I couldn't find anyone that ever solved it. Has anyone else seen this, and does anyone have a clue how I can fix it? How long can I get away with just yanking the power before the eMMC is corrupted beyond use? Thanks, Jay
