Re: building cobalt kernel
This is in response to Nik Reiman's message on March 3.
I have recently been compiling kernels for a NASRaQ. Since it uses
much of the same hardware as the Qube 2 (and therefore I'm assuming the
RaQ 2), this may apply:
there is a size limitation to the uncompressed size of the kernel
binary. That is, the size of the vmlinux image BEFORE it's compressed
The largest kernel I have gotten to boot so far was 1672044 bytes. The
smallest kernel which failed to boot was 1713308 bytes. So, the cutoff
is somewhere between those two sizes.
Most likely you will need to build a heavily modularized kernel.
Also, remember to do 'strip --strip-unneeded vmlinux' on the vmlinux
image before compresssing it... this will save a couple hundred KB.
