Re: Kernel panic on reboot or shutdown

As @6by9 says.
And if it's that problem an update / upgrade should solve the problem.
It should get you to kernel version 4.14.70

I think you're the second person reporting this problem.
Looks like a production fault. Contact your supplier for a replacement / refund

Re: NFS Server stopped working

What OS + version do you use?
How do you try to mount the share (manually, fstab, ...)? Please share the exact command you use
Do you get any error messages when you try to mount the share?

Are you sure the NFS server is up and running correctly?

Re: systemd failed

That pandora thing looks like something that should not be started in rc.local but as a service. If it's a systemd journal try 'journalctl'. See e.g. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-journalctl-to-view-and-manipulate-systemd-logs You may need to run it with admin permissio...

Re: Shut down rpi with a keyboard key combo

I've not tried ctrl-alt-del key sequence since I usually do remote access. That might just do the job. By default that starts the taskmanager. You can change the key mapping by manipulating /home/pi/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml (at least in standard Raspbian desktop) For more details try searchin...

That's why I pointed you to the other forum. Probably best chance if it's related to the application itself.

Re: US and UK keyboard keeps toggling back and forth.

A bit lean on information...

What model Pi do you have?
What OS + version?
Is this on the command line or GUI (or both)?
How did you set / change the keyboard layout?

Can't remember hearing that before. Can you substantiate that (link to some info source or so)?
And how many is 'a lot'? 10s 100s, 1000s? Or even more?

Don't assume anything when troubleshooting. You'll miss the obvious one...
The error message says rc.local failed and that is the most likely cause.

Maybe you can post your rc.local here.

try adding

Would that make a difference? 'mount -a' works, so I would assume it uses the options that are in fstab.
