I am using the stock sysroot and arm kernel zImage downloaded from the yocto site. When I try to boot QEMU all is well until it tries to mount the nfs root filesystem. It can't find it and the kernel panics, I have set --debug all on in the runqemu-export-rootfs script but it throws no further errors. Does anyone have any idea why it would do this, is it possible that there is something wrong with the nfs implementation in the kernel and the module is not loaded correctly, or is it more likely that the nfs share isn't mounted on my machine and the kernel cannot find it.

Screenshot of kernel panic:

The only thing that jumps out at me is in the kernel boot up the rootfs doesn't have a value as can be seen in the screenshot, but I don't know if this is normal or not?

Ok, I managed to fix it. I needed to load the tun module to get it working. Maybe this should be added as a check in runqemu?

I am now having issues with connecting to the live image, I recieve a connection refused message when I try to upload the file to the virtual machine, I have just the stick minimal-dev image so no additional passwords set.
