How do I make sure of that? Just by building my own filesystem?
I tried to copy the library files fom my host to the target file system, and the system crashes. When I try to bring it up again, I get this:
VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem).
Freeing init memory: 76K
init: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared
object file: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory
Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
