# Mer SDK - stuck at "Mounting system directories..."

Heyyo, so I have been trying to setup the Mer SDK and I followed the instructions for the HADK 1.1.2 and I get as far as setting up the Mer SDK and I type SDK I get "Mounting system directories..." and it never progresses further than that...

I've tried with Ubuntu 16.04.3 and Fedora 26 and both get stuck at that same point... I've made sure to setup $MER_ROOT=$HOME/mer on both the .hadk.env and when setting up the Mer SDK she still won't get past "Mounting system directories..."

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong or missing?

[update]

I double checked everything and re-ran sdk and now I'm getting farther but getting this message:

I found that doing source$HOME/.mersdkubu.profile solves this issue for me with Ubuntu 17.10 which I was testing with when I decided to try and recreate this issue. I then also had a dbus error and exiting and reentering sdk fixed it

Please try running ls /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc -a before you enter the SDK first time after reboot if this fixes the error message about binfmt_misc.
