Dear all,

I am trying to boot a root file system build by buildroot. But I got this
error" init has generated signal 11 but has no handler for it".

My kernel version is 2.6.24-rc3
My target system is PPC 405 (XILINX VIRTEX II pro) I am using the 26-12-2007
snapshot of buildroot.

This is what I get on terminal:
