[uClinux-dev] Can't find init

Well I've sucessfully got the newer 2.4.x kernel running on the 68360,
except for one last step (I hope).
The ROM-FS is found and loads sucessfully (now), but after that I get a
kernel panic: no init found.

My romfs filesystem looks ok to me, and it certainly has a /bin/init
(the base one, not the busybox
one). My /etc/rc and /etc/inittab files look ok to me.

If anyone has any specific hints where to look that would be great !

I am attempting to debug init/main.c where it tries to run init, but
since right at the moment I'm
using the original coff patched gdb to debug the elf based distro it's a
bit of a mess :-)
Yes of course I'll be getting some elf tools going shortly (thinking of
going straight to Insight).
