Boot stopped at "A start job is running for dev-mmcb...\xc2\xa0.device"


I built the kernel “4.8.12-bone2” using Mr Nelson’s source and scripts and downloaded it to the Sdcard together with the file system “debian-8.6-bare-armhf-2016-09-17”, following the instructions on”. When the system booted it got stuck at “A start job is running for dev-mmcb…\xc2\xa0.device”, and after the timeout the system seemed to go in a loop and cannot finish booting. Could someone please tell me what this message means and what I might have done wrong?

Thank you very much.


Probably the wrong mmc name in /etc/fstab


I copied the fstab line from the instruction webpage, the device was /dev/mmcblk0p1. Is this the correct device? If not what should I put there?

That's correct for the microSD.

(eMMC would be /dev/mmcblk1p1)
