One of my slugs is still in the process of upgrading but I noticed
that during the setting up of the 2.6.32-5 kernel that the flashing
failed due to (output message):
I believe some other people are running the 2.6.32-5 kernel on their
NSLU2 so I'm wondering if you have some particular configuration that
causes a larger ramdisk than normal. Do you use LVM, RAID or have
Yes. I do have lvm installed for the slug. So, that is a decent size hit...
Can you upload initrd.img-2.6.32-5-ixp4xx somewhere so I can have a
look at it?
Sent to you separately.
I noticed that the kernel plus the initrd added up to about 7.9M and
so it should fit. The exact values are:
6874 -rw------- 1 root root 7009337 Feb 18 10:45 initrd.img-2.6.32-5-ixp4xx
The 8 MB flash is divided into different partitions and the ramdisk
partition is only 6 MB; see http://cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/boot.html
Thanks for the info.
