Kernel panic - /init: can't load library ''

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Hey everyone,

I had my Linux installation running along nicely, serving up web pages with
Boa, and was starting to feel real proud of myself (even though all of you
that helped me get things running deserve most of the credit) when my board
stopped booting properly.  I was trying to get telnetd working through
inetd, and I must've changed some configuration parameter or a file that it
didn't like.  I'm now getting a kernel panic stating that it can't load the

I reverted back to previous configurations, and it did not help, so
eventually I ran "make ARCH=arm clean" and rebuilt everything (using
buildroot).  This fixed the problem initially.  However, after screwing
around some more, the problem eventually came back.  Searching my buildroot
directory, I see that the file exists in
${PROJ_DIR}/build_arm/staging_dir/lib/ and
${PROJ_DIR}/toolchain_build_arm/gcc-4.1.2-final/gcc/ .  I've tried deleting
my project Linux directory as well as my rootfs directory, then recompiling,
but this doesn't help the situation.

I know I can do a "make clean" to fix it, but that requires a recompile of
the entire toolchain in addition to everything else, which takes an hour or
more.  Does anyone have an idea as to (a) what is causing this problem, and
(b) whether it's possible to fix it without recompiling everything?

Thanks in advance,

Starting kernel ...
