[Buildroot] Filesystem problem

Thank you for your helps.

Today I tried to make the file system again using buildroot. This time I
included busybox to the packages for target system (Before that, I did not
include the busybox). Surprisingly the system boot correctly.

But, I do not want to use busybox. I already compiled coreutils and I want
to put them on my target system. After building the root file system I tried
to replace those symbolic links to busybox(such as ls, cp, ...) with the
real commands from coreutils but I got this error.

Freeing unused kernel memory: 76k init
missing file opeKernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Try `/bin/Rebooting in 180 seconds..sh --help' for more information.

So, how can I use coreutils instead of busybox?

You probably don't have /dev/console in your root filesystem.
