Occasionally, my Compute Stick (Linux version) will hang after I perform a reboot. It will basically hang at the boot-up splash screen and I will have to manually power it off by holding to the "power button". This behaviour doesn't happen all the time, maybe 1 out of 10 to 20 times? As I need to perform an automatic reboot daily, and the system is unattended, it is causing some problem for me. Any idea what is the issue?
I am using the Windows version (STCK1A32WFC), running the image from the Linux version. I know that for my case, Intel will not be obligated to support it, but I do find it interesting that the problem doesn't happen all the time. It is hard for me to narrow down if it is a hardware compatibility issue or a software problem.
In this case like you mentioned this configuration is not supported by Intel but I understand and let's hope that other users can join this thread and add more information in regard to this behavior.
Please check on the following post: /thread/76216 Ubuntu LiveCD for the STCK1A32WFC (Windows).
Confirm if you applied any patches to prevent eMMC RPMB timeouts? REF - https://dev-nell.com/rpmb-emmc-errors-under-linux.html https://dev-nell.com/rpmb-emmc-errors-under-linux.html

Thanks for all the links. Will definitely check them out.
FYI, I am using the image from the Ubuntu version of ICS. Do you know if that version actually has the eMMC RPMB patched?
Went through the links, I don't think the problem is because of the eMMC RPMB issue. My problem doesn't happen all the time, in fact, it is pretty rare. I also tried to search for the error in the log files, but couldn't find any. Any idea what else could be the problem?
Thanks for your quick response.
Could you please upload the log files?
Please let me know which image did you use for the Intel® Compute Stick?
