JFFS2 as root FS

Hi, it's me again :-)
I have tried to mount the FS again and the files are still there.
It still takes 1 min and 30 sec to mount it and sometime when I do a ls the
for 10-20 sec before the output from ls is seen. Is this normal?
Maybe I should change my kernel, but to which? Linux 2.4.3? Or maybe a later
kernel from the PPC tree?
Also, when I boot the kernel it stops and ask for a kernel cmdline. Usually
return here and the boot continues with my default values. How can I make
the kernel bypass
this and start without any questions asked?

Did you try to mount the flash again under linux? We had a problem with the
endianess some time ago and run into the same trouble as you did. Mounting
took a long time and after that the flash was completely empty. Files cound
be moved onto it, but as soon as you re-mounted the flash it was empty
again. Try if this happens to you too.
I know its a wild guess but maybe it helps!
