Re: armel/marvell kernel size

Hello guys,
I believe the problem we are facing on Kirkwood with stretch is the same I had with iop32 and other folks with ixp4xx.
As the support for iop32 on Wheezy is under EOL, do we have any hopes to solve the kernel size issue common for all this architectures or it's time to replace our nas?

best regards

A lot of questions…  I’ll do my best to answer them as best I can sometime this weekend (There are an equally large lot of things on my to-do list this week!  /-: )

In the mean time here’s a start:

OpenRD Client
> rbthomas@client:~$ uname -a
> Linux client 4.9.0-6-marvell #1 Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02) armv5tel GNU/Linux

> rbthomas@sheeva:~$ uname -a
> Linux sheeva 4.9.0-6-marvell #1 Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02) armv5tel GNU/Linux

Both are running the latest Stretch.
