Is there any way to verify that the filesystem image has been created
Quoted from the wiki:
"The build process will generate a lot of output, and you may see some
error messages go by. Unless the build halts with a glaring error
message, you can safely ignore them for now -- some application
configuration scripts will try various approaches and choose the one
If it succeeds, the build will end with a line describing your shiny
new root filesystem, which will be named rootfs.arm_nofpu.jffs2."
My build halted with a number of error messages and no line describing
the filesystem (I ran: make defconfig, make menuconfig (with some
non-default packages selected), then make). How can I diagnose if
there is a problem and/or locate the filesystem:
rootfs.arm_nofpu.jffs2. A 'find *.jffs2" yields no results.

I always recommend that you do a default build first with no
menuconfig modifications. Then you know the basic process works.
You should find the rootfs.arm_nofpu.jffs2 file in the
gumstix-buildroot directory (same directory that you ran make from).
If you got errors, then you won't have a filesystem (since creating
the filesystem is the very last step).
