Hi,

>I've sucessfully built  several root filesystems  for my custom board (AT91RM9200 + 8MiB DataFlash),  but  now  i'm >facing a  strange problem.

>I'm using a JFFS2 filesystem on an MTD partition into the DataFlash, my rootfs boots OK, but ONLY for the first time. >See steps:


>1) Create a rootfs JFFS2 image using buildroot -> OK
>2) Erase entire flash partition: I boot from an initrd containing mtd-tools for this purpouse. -> OK
>3) Dump the rootfs image "rootfs.jffs2" into the Dataflash (i use loadb from u-boot here...) -> OK

>4) Boot the system... -> OK
>5) Login and issue a simple reboot, no other commands...nothing else.... -> OK

>After the reboot at step "5" the system comes again, but now when is press BACKSPACE it writes a space, and if i try >to add a user or change the root password

>i always get a "/etc/passwd" not found.



Is a problem of your busybox configuration :)
