    Hi ..
    I used cross compiler to build busybox And used the command

    mkfs.jffs2 --eraseblock=0x40000 --pad=0x01000000 --little-endian --root=rfs --output=rootfs.jffs2

    to build root image. But It has the error message :
    VFS: Mounted root (jffs2 filesystem) readonly.
    Freeing init memory: 100K
    Warning: unable to open an initial console.
    Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

    Anyone can give me a tip ? Thanks a lot.

    How did you build the filesystem? You are missing, at the least, /dev/console. If you use Buildroot, it uses "fakeroot" to create the devices as described in target/generic/device_tables.txt
