Re: Kernel Images 5.9.x becoming to large for QNAP TS219

Hi there!

I know I'm running quite an old system here, but apparently the kernel
images 5.9x are getting to large to be flashed on a Qnap TS219 device (I
assume others as well):

root@rusalka:~# flash-kernel
kirkwood-qnap: machine: QNAP TS219 family
Using DTB: kirkwood-ts219-6281.dtb
/usr/lib/linux-image-5.9.0-0.bpo.2-marvell/kirkwood-ts219-6281.dtb into
Taking backup of kirkwood-ts219-6281.dtb.
Installing new kirkwood-ts219-6281.dtb.
flash-kernel: installing version 5.9.0-0.bpo.2-marvell
Not enough space for kernel in MTD 'Kernel' (need 2327672 but is
actually 2097152).

Is there anything I can do to fix this? Maybe use a different
compression algorithm for the the kernel image or so?

COMPRESS=xz  see:

But maybe better to use the kernel from stable?


It is just a small home server, and the replacement system is standing
unconfigured next to it. I'm just wondering, if I should re-priorize the
migration to my new one, or can get it working for a bit longer.
