kernel boot errors

    fangeles - 2004-03-15

    got another message now
    after "init started : busybox ...3
    i got
    "mounting /dev/mtdblock0 on /mnt failed:
    no such file or directory"

    so i assume that /mnt doesnt exist ???
    even then, can i connect via serial port ?
    by the way, did u make a cable from extport
    to pc serial port ?
    [ and do u have to change from 3V to 5V ? ]

    help welcomed :)

      This is due to a problem we're facing with the SMC driver. By some reason, the FAT sector is being mistakenly calculated and then /dev/mtdblock0 doesn't help too much when trying to mount the device (yes, /mnt exists).

      By the way, it's possible to connect it via serial port. You just need to convert the voltage settings (with a MAX3222 or MAX3225, probably) and use a terminal program like minicom to log in.

      Good luck :)
