    [SOLVED] jffs2 warning while booting CLEANMARKER node found at ....


    Hi all

    I have created a root file system image (jffs2) using following command

    Code:
    mkfs.jffs2 -r <rfs_source> -p -o <rfs_image.jffs2>
    I ported this image to my ARM core based custom board, and board is booting well. But while booting, I am getting the following warning/display/error message.

    CLEANMARKER node found at 0x00000000 has totlen 0xc != normal 0x0
    CLEANMARKER node found at 0x00010000 has totlen 0xc != normal 0x0

    .
    .
    .
    .
    CLEANMARKER node found at 0x09ba0000 has totlen 0xc != normal 0x0
    CLEANMARKER node found at 0x09bb0000 has totlen 0xc != normal 0x0
    VFS: Mounted root (jffs2 filesystem).
    Freeing init memory: 104K
    login:

    As you see, this error starting from memory 0x00000000 and ending at 0x09bb0000. My NAND flash size is 256 MB.

    After this message,every thing fine.

    Why this message appears ? Is my mkfs.jffs2 usage correct ? I have installed mtd-utils to obtain mkfs.jffs2.

    Please help me on this issue.

    Regards
    SJR

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    My guess (not an expert with jffs file systems internals) is that the image is not marked as "clean". Can you fsck on the image?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    hi

    by adding --no-cleanmarkers in mkfs command , I could solve this problem.

    Thanks for the helps
