I am trying to get a custom kernel to boot on a PC104 board.
I can build the image and transfer it to the hard drive successfully. (Finally figured that out!)
However, after starting pterm in the background, the boot just hangs forever-I can’t press any keys or esc or open a terminal etc.
I have made the .ifs file from the buildfile.
The kernel runs a series of scripts on startup-started in the buildfile. It is these scripts that seem to be hanging.
So the buildfile calls:
mountdev.sh → mounts the hard drive
start0.sh-> does nothing and calls start1.sh->starts rest of the boot programs
start1.sh hangs after starting the pterm on the last line:
pterm /proc/boot/ksh &
I am trying to figure out where the failure is in the files and am not sure where to go from here. I am wondering how to determine if the failure is in the pterm start line above or if the failure occurs later on in the buildfile after these scripts have been run.
The 3 files have been attached.
