glibc included inside initramfs causes reboot
I'm attempting to build a linux appliance. The main root file system will be the initramfs image.
I've got everything else working except for this problem. It seems as soon as I install the glibc 32-bit libraries in the initramfs image, during boot it will automatically reboot on me.
System software using:
Here is what happens when it boots:
1. Successful decompression of linux kernel
2. Now says "booting the kernel"
3. And then it reboots a few seconds later
If I remove the glibc libraries, the .so files, it will boot normally. For those wondering, no it doesn't even get to the point where I see [0.00000] on the side. It just reboots as if it has crashed. But why would including glibc cause that?
This is also a multilib system, so I need the 32-bit and 64-bit c libraries of glibc included.
Found the problem. Glibc has international language support but the kernel 2.6.24 does not have it integrated yet. The moment I moved to kernel 22.214.171.124 it boots fine.
I did get it all working in using buildroot with an external toolchain Crosstool-NG that allowed me to select glibc.
