2009-09-29 14:21:27     Not able to create uImage.initramfs

Hi,

 

I am not able to create uImage.initramfs when I compile the distribution.

 

I am using the latest uClinux-dist-2009R1-RC6.tar.bz2 distribution and toolchain.

 

When I compile the distribution I only get the vmImage and vmlinux!

 

What could be the possible issue?

 

Thanks.

Perhaps you turned it off in menuconfig. What happens if you select "default all settings" in menuconfig, then do a make clean && make?

as Frank said, the images are created based on your configuration settings.  if you disabled the options in the kernel, then it means you didnt want these types of images and so the uClinux-dist build system wont generate them.

I am sorry, I don't remember which settings I changed because of which I am not able to create the uImage.

 

Can you please point me to which settings in linux kernel configuration I have to enable to create uImage.initramfs?

reading the Analog Devices vendor.mak shows that CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD controls initramfs
