Hi,

 

I am working with the BF527 based custom board and 2009R1-RC1 distribution.

 

I am facing a tftp booting problem, the booting stops at almost the end of kernel booting.

 

just before the root prompt.

 

Please find the last section of the log below.

Dear Mike,

 

I am not sure whether i am disabling or enabling the console shell. I guess below information will be useful to provide me some help.

 

I am working with u-boot 2008R1-RC3. The console is interfaced to the uart1. uart0 is used for controlling another device.

 

ramargs=set bootargs root=/dev/mtdblock0 rw clkin_hz=24000000 earlyprintk=serial,uart1,57600 console=ttyBF0,57600

 

[*] Default bootloader kernel arguments

 

(console=ttyBF1,57600) Initial kernel command string

 

Thank you.

Dear Mike,

 

Options are enabled in the distribution.

 

[*] init

 

[*] enable console shell

 

I tried doing make clean; make but still issue exists.

 

If i press enter then the root prompt comes.

 

Thank you.

make sure you have all the right device nodes in /dev and try enabling the unix ptmx option you disabled in the kernel
