Thread-topic: CRAMFS Ramdisk image as Rootfs

Hi All,


I was trying to mount cramfs image as Ramdisk rootfs for 2.6.14 kernel. Even though the kernel seems to detect the cramfs image, it is not able to mount it as rootfs. It throws the error “cramfs: bad root offset 4864” The target is little endian, and  RHEL host on which the image was built is also little endian.


The other images like EXT2 for ramdisk don’t seem to get detected at all, and just throws error “VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)”.  Anyone faced similar issue before or knows what could be causing the problem.


go r root=/dev/ram rd_start=0x85000000 rd_size=5009408 rootfstype=cramfs
