*** corrected the command, as I actually used 'mkfs.ext2 -j' ***

I just wanted to add that this topic helped me to resolve a reformatting hurdle. Using foonas-em, I was unable to create partitions that were readable with U-Boot 1.0.1 on a LS2 mipsel.

There is a well-known problem regarding the inode size, but my problem was unrelated.

It turns out that 'mkfs.ext2 -j' and 'mke2fs -t ext3' are not equivalent. The latter gives errors in U-Boot.

'mkfs.ext2 -I 128 -j' did the trick.

Just remember to also use 'tune2fs -c 0 -i 0' to prevent filesystem checks, if you are okay with that.

I don't have a 3rd partition and neither will anyone with a stock LS, right?

Wrong. Everyboy has the third partition, /dev/hda3. It is mounted on /mnt. And you are looking at the wrong configuration variable. ubpart is used to load and flash a ROM build from a RAM build.

In the standard configuration, U-Boot attempts to load the file boot/vmlinux.UBoot from the first hard disk partition, /dev/hda1. The partition and file name are stored in the environment variables "hdpart" and "hdfile" respectively. Note that the name of the file can be a symbolic link. Some of the precompiled binaries have changed the file name to "uImage" but if you compiled U-Boot yourself, this is not the case.



wrong? why? i have no idea about it, i am new user. :(
