i am trying to mount a jffs2 filesystem.
I enabled the mtd feature of the kernel in a way that it creates a
bootloader and filesystem partition in mtd0 and mtd1. I have loaded the
jffs2 image and copied it to a random address in the dataflash 0x40400000.
When the kernel booted up.. it went on until it displayed :

************************************************** ***************
Warning: unable to open an initial console.

Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init=
option to kernel.

************************************************** ***************

I looked at my filesystem and it contained /dev/console. I do not know what
the problem is.
Please help me.

Regards
Ranjith

Here is the console display:
