I have a problem when I boot my i.MX28 EVK board from SD card, in particular when the udev script is running. The error occurs when udev is trying to mount tmpfs as shown below. Is an errore due to an LTIB setting?


init started: BusyBox v1.15.0 ()

starting pid 918, tty '': '/etc/rc.d/rcS'
Mounting /proc and /sys

mount: mounting tmpfs on /dev failed: Invalid argument
