Dear ext.rajive.gupta at us.transport.bombardier.com,

In message <OFBFBBEA6F.65C4E816-ON852578B7.0046939C-852578B7.004723C7 at amer.bombardier.com> you wrote:

It appears this question has actually nothing to do with the ELDK.
You should ask such questions on a general Linux help oriented mailing
list, or eventually even contact Kontron technical support.

Please see Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt for the correct format
of this entry:


i. e. use a comma (',') instead of a dot ('.').

If the boot log stops with such a message, you should always ask
yourself if the normal console might not be working for some reason.

Please don't do that.  Include such files only when somebody asks for
them. Otherwise it's just a waste of bandwidth.

Incorrect boot arguments to the Linux kernel.

In C we had to code our own bugs, in C++ we can inherit them.
