I have given up on trying to install and run Kali Linux.
I downloaded a Ubuntu image to try and run that instead.
To my pleasant surprise, it seemed to installed perfectly : with the
sweeping LED lights and the terminal codes saying that it has flashed
properly to the eMMC (which is a 2 GB eMMC, and the image size is 1.7 GB)
But when I started the BBB after flashing. Only the first two LEDs flashed
and stayed lit ( USR0 and USR1). But nothing else happened. It's been like
that since about 30 minutes now.
There is not HDMI output either.
Any idea what might be happening and how I can fix it ?
