Hi,

I'm trying to get a small embedded filesystem running from a pendrive. I
have it booting the kernel, but it always fails when It goes to mount the
root filesystem.

It always complains about "block-device-8".

Anyone got any thoughts?
Thanks

Iain

Only thoughts.  Probably not much in the way of help.

This sounds familiar.  Are you using LILO?  Did you run it on a system
other than your target?  Are you aware of "disk="?

Devil linux has scrpts to create a Pen Drive distribution. Try having a look
and see if you can use it as a base?

There are a bunch of issues here, but one thing that needs to be
pointed out: After loading your USB module and the usb-storage module,
you should pause for three or four seconds, because it takes a finite
time for the device to be mountable.
