I wanted to build a bare linux system with minimum functionality. So I compiled kernel 2.6.15 and able to boot with a root filesystem.( created root filesystem by following "Embedded Linux" book by Craig). My problem is that framebuffer device (/dev/fb0) is not created by kernel. While building kernel I already enabled framebuffer support. I also got the linux tux logo at boot time. Even dmesg also indicated the fb0. I even created /dev/fb0 device myself but no use.

I got the following message also while booting

"failed to rmdir //dev: Device or resource busy"
INIT: version 2.86 booting
INIT entering runlevel 1

I have one more doubt. I cant use the mount command, getting error "only root can do that" .But in runlevel 1, why is it so?

Can someone plese help me?
