I'm not exactly familiar with any of this, but it seems that the image expects newer kernel. What I believe the issue here is the (in)famous console switch from ttyS2 in 2.6.34 kernel to ttyO2 in >=2.6.36 kernels. The change in /etc/inittab from "S:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 ttyO2" to "S:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 115200 ttyS2" should make it boot (or rather open the terminal) again. Hope that helps.

Regards,
Marius.

ok, here go my attempts' descriptions:

1) bitbake linux-omap3-caspapx from the overo-2011.03 branch

Error: No such file or directory: '/home/gonber/overo-oe/org.openembedded.dev/recipes/linux/linux-omap3-caspapx-2.6.34/overo/./${BOOT_SPLASH}'
I commented out the BOOT_SPLASH in the recipe and rerun bitbake. it worked

2) bitbake omap3-console-image from overo-2011.03 branch

3) Put everything on the microSD, including replacing the contents of /boot by the uImage generated for linux-omap3-caspapx.

Boot stopped with: "INIT: Id "S" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes"

Now I can think of 2 possibilities:

a) BOOT_SPLASH is needed

b) omap3-console-image expects 2.6.39 and doesn't work with 2.6.34.

Do you have any suggestions?

Tks in adv,
gonšalo

Take a look at recipes/linux/linux-omap3-caspapx_2.6.34.bb

This recipe came from the Overo branch.
