I've walked through building with LTIB using L3.0.35_4.1.0_130816 source and images.

I installed everything to SD card as per instructions in SABRE-SD users' guide.

At powerup uboot runs as expected, it pulls the kernel of the SD card and then the

kernel attempts to access the file system and things fail...


EXT3-fs: barriers not enabled

kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds

EXT3-fs (mmcblk1p1): using internal journal

EXT3-fs (mmcblk1p1): recovery complete

EXT3-fs (mmcblk1p1): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode

VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) on device 179:25.

Freeing init memory: 200K

modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/3.0.35-2027-g0596856/modules.dep: No such file or directory


mount: mount point /lib/init/rw is not a directory

mountall: mount /lib/init/rw [3937] terminated with status 32

mountall: Filesystem could not be mounted: /lib/init/rw


I remove the sd card and look at the contents on a real linux box and the /lib/modules/3.0.35-2027-g0596856 does not exist.  The dir on my sd card (as created from oneiric.tgz) is 3.0.35-2666-gbdde708.  Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
