Hi All


Can anyone clarify what is the rootfs directory I am supposed to change directory (cd) into:


$ cd <your rootfs directory>

$ sudo -s

$ tar -cjf ../rootfs.tar.bz2 ./*


I am trying to use the MFGtool in order to create a bootable SD card from a pre-compiled demo BSP

I am told that I need these files: “u-boot.bin”, “uImage”, “rootfs.tar.bz2”

Now, “u-boot.bin” and “uImage”come from the BSP release. Not the “rootfs.tar.bz2”!

I would appreciate if one could explain in more detail what the rootfs directory is all about.

Any good documentation on the subject is appreciated too.
