I'm trying to use the mkfs.ext3 command on a sabre SD board (to format the 8GB flash).
My first question is how to get the mkfs.ext3 (or ext2 and ext4) into the image (using Yocto)
Right now I tried to include e2fsprogs in my local.conf (in CORE_IMAGE_EXTRA_INSTALL) plus the bb-file for the image (in this case core-image-base).
I could see that it included the mkfs.ext3 files in my build, but I found some in directory:
So I tried to use these ones.
The problem I see is that it takes forever to format the flash, after roughly 2 hours it has format half of the flash.
Anyone who has experience with this application?
