14.3.8. Unable to open an initial console

Question:
The Linux kernel boots, but then hangs after printing: "Warning: unable to open an initial console".

Answer:
Most probably you have one or missing entries in the /dev directory in your root filesystem. If you are using the ELDK's root filesystem over NFS, you probably forgot to run the ELDK_MAKEDEV and ELDK_FIXOWNER scripts as described in 3.7. Mounting Target Components via NFS.
