It seems that right after local-fs.target doesn't work. Any idea what prevents it from working early in the boot process?

  • Does it spit out any errors (e.g. in journalctl) that might point towards what's missing?

  • Unfortunately it doesn't say much, except that my disableusb script (I placed the camera stuff there as a test) failed to start. Then it just hangs, it will never get to the serial console login, so I have to power off, put the card in my pc and comment out the camera line there. Lucky for me, I can access (r/w) file systems from my Windows machine, or else it would really suck :)

  • You need to provide more details: the exact command that fails, the error messages (have you tried raspistill blabla 2>&1 >error.log?), relevant details about your boot process. Commented Jan 29, 2018 at 14:58

I found the problem, by manually starting the script after the log in. The camera cable moved a bit and I was getting an error, and for some reason things didn't continue after that. Now it works ok.
