Embedded Linux - Root File System

The next step in to build a root file system.
there are many ways to do that. we are using busybox
busybox creates a single file that implements many tools from the file system
you can download it and configure it using "make menuconfig"
the only thing you should remember is to copy the .so files from the lib directory in your toolchain (usr/local/arm/3.4.1/arm-linux/lib) to the lib directory in the root file system

after creating the file system place it in a directory and update the file /etc/exports with access rights :

/opt/osk/rootfs2.6 *(rw,no_root_squash)

restart the nfs server
