Hi All

I'm not sure if this is the best list; please indicate which if not so.
Some of the lists did not respond to my subscribe yet...

I'm struggling to build openmoko.  Tried both 2007.1 and 2007.2 using
OpenmokoMakefile.  It seems to build to the point where it is creating
the rootfs; then dies :

NOTE: package openmoko-devel-image-1.0: started

If I edit device_table-minimal.txt to make tinylogin a c (character
device) instead of f (file), it fails on the next file (mount).  Seems
make rootfs can not make files; only devices ?

Any help appreciated.
