"Waiting for root device" Lock Up

Question asked by Paul DeMetrotion on Jan 28, 2013
Latest reply on Nov 30, 2013 by OtavioSalvador

I am in the process of building a kernel for a custom iMX6 Single Board Computer. I am using the ltib tool and kernel version 3.0.35. I believe I am at the last error before I will get a login prompt. At the end of the entire kernel_init function I get stuck in the prepare_namespace function which has a printk statement of "Waiting for root device /dev/mmcblk0p1". I have copied the images and a file system to a micro-SD card on partition 1. It would appear that either my boot device is not named properly or it is not responding which probably isn't thecase since I already have accessed it quite a bit. The boot dump is here. Note that the printk is not displaying but I used an emulator to verify it did get executed.
