Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Target-Installer


Failed to open rootfs of the installed WRLinux target with observing kernel panic.(Please see the attached snapshot.)
It seems mount position for rootfs is specified as /dev/sdx device by default GRUB configuration.
However expected mount position is /dev/hdx.
To let the target start normally, it requires correction of mount position manually.

Please fix it in order to start the target without any additional steps on "Wind River Linux 6.0 USER'S GUIDE".
Or guide customer to accomplish until starting target by "Wind River Linux 6.0 USER'S GUIDE" either.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Follow "Booting and Installing with QEMU" from p.363 till end of the section on "Wind River Linux 6.0 USER'S GUIDE". 
2. Start the installed WRLinux target on QEMU.
$ make start-target TOPTS="-no-kernel -disk hd0.vdisk -gc"
