System doesn't support vfat filesystems on microSD cards

The kernel isn't built with the vfat module (and fsck.vfat and such are neither
provided by default, nor available in an ipkg module). This means when you
stick in an SD card, it doesn't work. (You have to reformat it into ext3 or
something else, which non-interoperable with most other devices using SD and
microSD cards.)

  • Resolution set to fixed

the kernel is built with the vfat module! The module is provided by the
kernel-module-vfat ipkg.

Or are you saying that this module should be part of the standard rootfs image?

The kernel works for me now. My problem was that I'd updated with "ipkg update"
which breaks your kernel modules anytime someone updates the kernel.

At Harald's request, I've logged the "kernel upgrade breaks modules" bug as #910.
