Kernel panic booting Dowse on a Raspberry pi 2

Hello I'm wondering if someone could help me with a problem I am having with dowse on a Raspberry Pi 2

When I try to boot the image I get a Kernel panic error. I have re flashed the SD card several times and re downloaded the image but I still get the same error below.

"end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b
random: crng init done"

I have looked at a few forums about this error regarding the raspberry pi, the solutions are reinstall it to the SD card or replace the SD card.
Press enter on the keyboard or plug in a mouse.
Apart from replacing the SD card none of these seem to resolve the error sadly. I tested the SD card with Raspbian and it worked fine so I think the SD card is okay.

Hopefully someone might be able to help with this error, dowse looks like a really interesting project.

To few information... sad

But probably the rootfs partition doesn't have '/sbin/init'..
That message is common when it doesn't exist..

By other words, you are probably using a incorrect rootfs has rootfs..
when it tries to run '/sbin/init', it doesn't find him, and panics..

Does you have a complete log of what happens? smile

Best Regards,
