UBI Errors
December 27, 2010 10:09AM
Hi all,

I've got the Rescue System installed in my dockstar and although I have no problems booting into an os (the rescue system, plugbox and armedslack) I do get a few errors messages during the early uboot startup. I'm just asking if there is anything wrong here and how would I go about fixing it. Here's the output from my serial connection (it's the three UBI errors just before the loading if uImage that I'm asking about)

That's nothing to worry about. The bootloader is just checking to see if you have a bootable system on the internal nand. You don't, so it fails and falls back to booting from the USB drive.

That's what I thought.
