RE: SS4000E Kernel v3.4 Config
Thanks again to Arnaud for suggesting that a smaller size zImage generating
menuconfig .config can be extracted in boot/config-3.2.0-3-iop32x of the deb
Indeed it does. This generates a zImage of 1.53MB which is good, <2MB.
However d-i fails to detect the network card on the EM7220 which I would
think is the same as the 7210.
And it's none of these listed by d-i, it's an on board Intel 82541PI
http://em7210.kwaak.net/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/wiki/HardwareDetails. There must be
another setting error since the iop32x_defconfig which created the too large
zImage detected the network.
I don't see this device in Device Drivers > Network Device Support of
What to do?

the defconfig would probably enable too many things. In the debian
package, we're making sure that it's not more than 1441784B so it would
fit in 2MB. Look at your /boot if you already installed a debian kernel
before. Otherwise, download the deb from a mirror and extract its
content in a temporary directory and you'll get a boot/config-$VERSION.
