 I'm using busybox and the kernel 3.2.1 on the i.MX28 EVK board. The serial console name change and it's now ttyAMA0 instead of ttyAM0.


So I needed to make a adjustment in the inittab file. Now I have the following line in the inittab file:

     ttyAMA0::respawn:/sbin/getty -L ttyAMA0 115200 vt100


When the system finises booting, I will the following error message:


can't open /dev/ttyAMA0: No such device or address



I created the device node by using this command:

     mknod -m 666 ttyAMA0 c 204 16



Does anybody knows what the problem is?


Thanks for your help,
