I am the proud owner of several (actually plenty) redpitaya1.1/stemlab125-14 bought in different batches, all running with exact same SD card image.
On some of them, issuing "reboot" command from linux shell works fine.
On some of them, issuing "reboot" command from linux shell doesn't reboot:
All the processes are halted, then when it's time to physically reboot nothing happens.
I need to power-cycle it.
It is critical to get it working on all platforms for my application.
But since I have different behavior with same SD image, I am puzzled.
Could it be a hardware difference between the stemlab ?

thank you very much for bringing this up.
This issue was just confirmed to be caused by the sd cards. Anybody else in this situation please try to re-install the SO image on the sd card or if you are using a generic one switch to a brand name fast memory card. Class 10 or above.
Special thanks to Richard! for taking the time to test on multiple hardware and confirmed that issue was always following the sd cards.
