RE: [Ltib] Old uImage Won't Boot

That strange command line is because the line wrap is off during boot time.

This line

Kernel command line: root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip=

Is actually this line:

Kernel command line: root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip=


It must be something else. The NFS mounts. But after that all subsequent mounts fail.


This is posted just before the NFS is mounted:

IP-Config: Complete:

     device=eth0, addr=, mask=, gw=,

     host=mpc8536ds, domain=, nis-domain=(none),

     bootserver=, rootserver=, rootpath=


Is ‘rootpath=’ correct? Should it be blank? All other parameters seem correct.

This configuration booted in the past. But I don’t have the ‘good’ boot log. I’m afraid I screwed up the permissions when I coped the directory for backup.

Thanks Again

I have attached the log from the bootloader.


It won’t boot any more. Wondering if I messed up the file system somehow.


From the kernel boot log:

Kernel command line: root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip=

The last entry "255.255.25f" doesn't look right, I'd expect it to be something like "" as the netmask...

During the boot process every mount fails after NFS filesystem mounted:

mount: permission denied. (are you root?)


All files are at the user level, not root.

Could I have copied the directory incorrectly?

How do I fix?


Thanks. This is my baseline and it doesn’t work!
