    Finding mkfs.jffs2


    Hi!
    Is there anyone that could give me som advice on where to find mkfs.jffs2 for kernel 2.6.18 (or around there)? Been looking around, but only find really old versions. Both source and binary works, but binary would save me some work

    @Lakshmipathi:
    Thanks! Visited that site, but appearently didn't read it all. The README file that comes when i checkout hasn't been updated since 2000, and talks about version 2.4.

    Could this be the most recent mkfs.jffs2 anyway? Seems to be version 1.50. I've had some problems with older versions of mkfs.jffs2 on kernel 2.6.18 before

    Today While I was reading embedded book,unexpectedly it said "mkfs.jffs2 is part of mtd tools package."
    T2 SDE - The Open System Development Environment

    Hope this helps.

    This is what worked for me:
    Code:
    #######################
    # MTD-UTILS
    # This gets the tools needed to builds jffs2 filesystems:
    wget ftp://ftp.infradead.org/pub/mtd-utils/mtd-utils-1.2.0.tar.bz2
    
    # Install per usual:
    tar -xjf mtd-utils-1.2.0.tar.bz2
    cd mtd-utils-1.2.0
    make && make clean
    make install
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
