Is there something that I can disable to get static bash to run to the
prompt, with the core-image-minimal image?
well compile bash or dash as static and copy it manually into the
rootfile system
nfs root works well for such experiments. Do you have that option ?
I tired manually copying the static bash binary 8mb, over to the ramdisk root folder. The problem still manifests, if there is no other file other than the static bash file, it displays the prompt. If the core-minimal-console image exists, along with the static bash binary in the root location, it gives the kernel panic, as shown above.
