hello again,
i joined the forum today only. happy to keep in tch.

i am currently working on embedded linux and i have the following problem:
1) i went to uClibc and downloaded the i386 precompiled toolchain:1386_root_fs.ext2.(this consists of uclibc+busybox+gcc)
2)i downloaded the kernel 2.6.23-rc2 version
after installing these two on flash memory i did the following:
a) tar -zxvf setserial-2.17.tar.gz
b)cp -rf setserial.c setserial-2.17
c)cd setserial-2.17
d)./configure
e)make
f)make install

all this works fine ... then i do:
modprobe 8250
the error is:
modprobe:module not found
modprobe:unable to load module 8250.........


then i try .....insmod 8250
the error is ... unable to configure insmod in old kernels.

I DONT KNOW HOW TO SOLVE THIS........
i just tried this:
i downloaded busy box 1.10 version and copied the bin,sbin and usr folders from busybox to the tool chain i had used .( i replaced these folders).
then when i rebooted the error comes:
kernel panic: no init found. try passing init=option to kernel.

PLEASE HELP ME SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.......
thanking you,
regards,
