[Buildroot] Unable to create files inside mounted root filesystem

Hi all,

I hope this is a typical newbie question. I was finally able to create a
root filesystem (ext2) with buildroot, and I can mount (-o loop) and
chroot into it with no problems.

The trouble is that I cannot create any files in the mounted filesystem:
/ # touch foo
touch: foo: No space left on device

Strangely, when I mount/chroot into one of the pre-built root
filesystems available from the uclibc website, I can create files
without any problems.

I'm trying to figure out what I did differently creating my root
filesystem that would cause this problem, but at the moment I'm out of

Any advice?
