i.MX53 kernel panic "invalid blocks count"

Discussion created by fcs on Sep 11, 2012

I have successfully done a minimal build with the i.MX53 ltib and deployed it to a microSD card by doing

sudo cp -r ltib/rootfs/* /media/sdcard/


Is this the best way to deploy the built image?


However the "FSL gnome release packages" build has a kernel panic during the boot:


mke2fs 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009)

init: invalid blocks count - setenv

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

[<80066108>] (sys_exit_group+0x10/0x18) from [<80033f80>] (ret_fast_syscall+0x0/0x30)



I have attached the complete kernel boot output. What does "invalid blocks count" mean?


It has something to do with mke2fs:
