I am trying to run geth --light --cache 64 --rinkeby but it stucks on

INFO [02-12|08:58:16] IPC endpoint opened: /home/pi/.ethereum/rinkeby/geth.ipc.

I am using geth on a Raspberry.

The full output is:

geth --light --cache 64 --rinkeby

I tried the same command on my macOS Mojave and it works fine, after opening IPC endpoint it continues importing blocks and states.

Should I assume it's a problem with the machine on which the geth is running?
