* fs/common.mk: delay evaluation of variablesGravatar Arnout Vandecappelle (Essensium/Mind)2013-01-201-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This makes things easier to understand and more consistent with the pkg-infra. For example, it removes the need for '$$@' in the CMD variables of fs/*/*.mk. It also makes it possible to update the variables later, e.g. in the package override file. It also makes sure that the date will be recorded correctly in Yann E. Morin's patch that logs the MESSAGE macros to a file. The fs/*/*.mk must be updated as well because the '$@' shouldn't be quoted anymore in the CMD variables or the hooks. The $(eval ...) for the dependencies is redundant, because the $(ROOTFS_TARGET) variable is already eval'd. Note that it is only redundant if the evaluation of the uses of the variable is also delayed.

* fs/common: Create initial console deviceGravatar Markos Chandras2012-11-211-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | A /dev/console node must be present in rootfs when the Linux kernel boots otherwise the kernel will print the following warning: "Warning: unable to open an initial console" This is because when we use an initramfs the /dev directory is not populated at this point. This can cause problems when a program (e.g ldso with early debugging enabled) opens a standard file descriptor for read/write before these descriptors are actually created by the init process later on.

* cpio/initramfs: clarify their use in the help textGravatar Arnout Vandecappelle2012-11-071-3/+8
| | | | | | | | | | Recent mails on the list show that it is not very clear how to create an initial RAM fs with buildroot. So make this more explicit in the cpio and initramfs help texts. Hopefully this will reduce the /init debugging we have to do. Signed-off-by: Arnout Vandecappelle (Essensium/Mind) <arnout@mind.be> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
* cpio: fix boot with dynamic /devGravatar Arnout Vandecappelle (Essensium/Mind)2011-09-272-5/+26
| | | | | | | | | | | | Devtmpfs doesn't get automounted by the kernel when an initramfs is used. Since cpio archives are used almost exclusively as an initramfs, the same fix should be applied to it as for the initramfs. Cfr. commit 424888e47431db738f5f9b3c6392435bfce7a842 and 10a130f91e5b947e2d2558443ff09b1686eac273.
