    Mke2fs hangs


    Hello
    I would very much appreciate some help on the following.

    I am using a version of uClinux. and a 8GB SD card.
    I tried to make a single big partition with

    Code:
    fdisk /dev/mmcblk0
    and succeeded. Then I tried making a ext3 file system on it with

    Code:
    mke2fs -j  /dev/mmcblk0p1
    Here the command proceeded to some point where it creates the journal and then the system hang. I couldnt access it in any way, so I had to pull the power from it.

    Does anybody knows what is the problem and how to solve it?


    (I actually later created a smaller partition and I could use mke2fs without problem on it so maybe the problem is the size?)

    Thanks a lot for the help you can provide me

    Do you want to try verbose mode to see where exactly it's hanging?
    Code:
    mke2fs -j -v /dev/mmcblk0p1
