Question Ask for issue: Warning: unable to open an initial console.


MIPS architecture CPU, squashfs filesystem.
It looks like the ramdisk rootfs mounted and accessed normal.
But could not open an initial console during init_post() in kernel boot.

Anyone could give me some suggestion?
Thanks.

The boot message is as below, and printk work in kernel space but printf not work in user space.

Now, it is fixed.

The root cause is unhealthy binary map files in the rootfs.
Since the binaries and libraries should be stripped for size, the map files for them are stored in the rootfs. But some the map file is unhealthy.
