I crated an image with buildroot. Everything went smooth. When I untarred the bz2 image in vmware and tried to boot into it then I observed an issue, in which, system is unable to recognize any user, even root.

While starting dbus, it gives error as:

Could not get password database information for UID of current process: User "???" unknown or no memory to allocate password entry

Unknown username "root" in message bus configuration file

Could not get password database information for UID of current process: User "???" unknown or no memory to allocate password entry

free -m returns total=> 1006 used=> 46 free=> 959

  • How exactly did you create that image? Post your config file and the exact commands you ran. Also tell us what files are included in the resulting image. It looks like you're missing /etc/passwd. – Gilles Feb 7 '13 at 23:34
  • I ran the command as: make menuconfig make. I used the resultant tar.bz2 file to extract in to vmware HD. Kernel cmdline as is linux /boot/bzImage root=/dev/sda1 init Config file is pasted here: pastebin.com/2i1iJFkL – SHW Feb 8 '13 at 5:43
