Hi Henrik,

run make menuconfig
type /VMWARE

Can you tell me more about busybox ?
What do you mean "busybox in an initramfs" ?

I understand that due to failed boot process because the kernel can't mount
the root file system to read /etc/inittab.
So we use busybox to mount manually . Right ?

Thanks and Regards,
Khoa Nguyen.
