The problems is that there is no way to attach a monitor, so if I cannot connect to the OSPi with SSH, then I m running blind. SO I have to shut it down by pulling the power cord, this is a bad thing to and can corrupt the card. It is not easy to see if the leds are blinking, SO I plug in a monitor, enter to key strokes to log in, hoping that it is working, I then enter the Sudo Halt, wait a bit then pull the plug. That is where a lack of a monitor comes in. I don’t know if I logged in successfully or if the Halt command was executed. If those two caps were not in the way I could plug in a monitor and troubleshoot if I cannot SSH to the OPSI. In fact today I removed the PI from the SO board plugged in a monitor and was able to do some trouble shooting.
