Re: Slug needs a 'rest' between boots
- I am not sure if this is the reason, as I am using Debian. There is an issue with linux if you have multiple drives connected to the Slug, it does not always know which drive is which when it boots up and assigns a name to the device. So sometimes your boot drive can get /dev/sda and but sometimes it can get /dev/sdb, etc. This can happen quite randomly and you will eventually get lucky and the slugs pick the right one and it boots, else it just sits there.
The solution to that is to mount the drives by UUIDs and you can search for it in the linux-slug site.
Hope this gets you closer to a solution.
