Dear Friends I want to know the procedure of building the mkyaffs2image and mkyaffs2image-128 from the source files of the mkyaffs. Also I am unable to find the mkyaffs source codes on the internet. So can you please help me out.
Building mkyaffs2image tool from source
Hi guys, Is there nobody who know the technique of building the mkyaffs2image binary or executable for mini2440 right from scratch.
Can I assume you have Googled , mkyaffs2image source code> ? I see a link to Doug Abbot's book and the link seems to suggest he describes where the source code is. It is taking too long to download here in my very limited bandwidth internet connection. It has been 5 or more years since I cross-compiled something for the mini2440. It is a painful process. And for a obsolete device with little support I hope this is only an educational exercise.
First of all a very warm welcome to you davef, since I last heard from you on my one of the post 6 years back in 2011. Now again you replied so I am very happy to see you again :) and now as per my query , yeah I do googled a lot and I have found the yaffs site which is this: http://www.yaffs.net/ But what I dont know my friend is that how can I create two mkyaffs2image image i.e. one is mkyaffs2image and mkyaffs2image-128M from the single source code of the yaffs. It does not mean that I posted to this forum without doing my homework and I build the mkyaffs2image from the source code but the rootfs which I created through my image does not booted and showed the kernel panic message. Thats why I turned on to this forum in order to seek some help from you people in hope that some of you might have done this job. Also I want to say that no matter if the mini2440 is old than tell me the building process for some other board and I will modify it as per the mini2440. So whats you call.....
Hi Piyush, Firstly, I think I have misunderstood the purpose of mkyaffs2image. Does this just run on the host to make a Yaffs root filesystem? If so, my "cross-compile" comment is incorrect. Did Doug Abotts reference help? Just in case you haven't read this: http://www.friendlyarm.net/forum/topic/327
