Original Pogoplug, v2 Pink/Gray E02, Series 4, DockStar, and GoFlex installation and device help here.
I've noticed that my pogoplug v1 always fails to boot into Arch from a cold boot. (power failure, power cycle, etc.) Once the pogoplug boots into its pogoplug OS, I can SSH into it and just type reboot and it'll boot into Arch.
I assume this might be due to my Arch install on a usb stick and some timing issue with loading drivers.
I'm thinking the solution should be a script that runs if the pogoplug OS loads. This would mean Arch failed to boot and the script will just reboot the plug with a one minute buffer in case I want to SSH into the pogoplug OS.
Is this the right way to solve this issue?

I had the same problem on my DockStar. A solution that worked for me was posted here
- Code: Select all
fw_setenv bootcmd 'usb start; usb stop; usb start; run force_rescue_bootcmd; run ubifs_bootcmd; run usb_bootcmd; usb stop; run rescue_bootcmd; run pogo_bootcmd; reset'

Thanks Hydro that fixed my problem too. I had the same issue but with a 10 gig hard drive partition.
