    • OMV 4 : Blinking Cursor after reboot


      After a fresh installation of OMV 4.1.19-1 on '4.14.94-odroidxu4 #14 SMP PREEMPT Fri Feb 8 11:14:13 CET 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux', when it is rebooted through command line a blank cursor appear and it gets hung. However when it is switch off and on , everything works normally.

      Could you please help on how to remove the blank cursor while rebooting from commandline.

    • I'm not an expert, but here is my anser from own experience. It is highly likely that the Linux kernel doesn't know how to send the right reboot command to your system. The way you need to do this can be different for each system/CPU/motherboard so you need to pass the right options to the kernel, to tell it how to reboot properly.

      You should look into configuring GRUB with the correct kernel REBOOT parameters, often acpi/bios/pci. This takes some trial and error.

      For a hint on how to approach this you could look here (Yes I know this is Ubuntu, but it's similar enough to Debian for this and this is the link I could find.) Kernel parameters from here…de/kernel-parameters.html :

      Source Code

      1. reboot= [KNL]
      2. Format (x86 or x86_64):
      3. [w[arm] | c[old] | h[ard] | s[oft] | g[pio]] \
      4. [[,]s[mp]#### \
      5. [[,]b[ios] | a[cpi] | k[bd] | t[riple] | e[fi] | p[ci]] \
      6. [[,]f[orce]
      7. Where reboot_mode is one of warm (soft) or cold (hard) or gpio,
      8. reboot_type is one of bios, acpi, kbd, triple, efi, or pci,
      9. reboot_force is either force or not specified,
      10. reboot_cpu is s[mp]#### with #### being the processor
      11. to be used for rebooting.
