I see strange things happening with state-of-the-art uSD SDHC cards
like the SanDisk Ultra 32GB SDHC I and SanDisk Extreme Plus 32GB
SDHC I in my Gumstix system (crystal@parlor).
With the latter I seem to have problems when rebooting the system, I
always have to unplug and plug in the power connector, otherwise the
system is stuck after the last messages:
Will now restart
With the first (SanDisk Ultra 32GB SDHC I) I seem to get occasional
filesystem errors after a cold start, after rebooting one or
twotimes these errors go away and the uSD card seems to work, also
rebooting works. Fsck doesn't find any fs errors.
When I go back to my old (small and slow) uSD cards it always works,
same rootfs, same kernel. So there can't be anything else than the
uSD cards itself, causing the problem.
Has anybody of you seen similar effects? This is really confusing me
currently. Can anybody recommend fast 32 GB SDHC cards which work
reliably on a Gumstix DuoVero system?
My partition setup is the same as recommended by Gumstix
(http://gumstix.org/create-a-bootable-microsd-card.html), it used to
work with other (smaller) cards and Gumstix Overo systems for years,
