Hi Folks,

I have an ADI:Coyote board that I am trying to get up with the Snapgear
3.1.1 1.4 kernel.

I have compiled everything from scratch and chosen all the defaults.  When I
download and boot, it says that the filesystem is readonly, and then when it
tries to run init it goes off into the weeds.  I have uncompress the ramdisk
and mounted it on my PC linux system via the loop device and it looks fine.

Any help would be appreciated....

Here is the console log:
