Yes, it may make sense to split the image.  I'll look into this later.
The current 2.6 kernel doesn't boot on Netwinder and I'm being told
that it's due to a bug in the Netwinder firmware.  So there *might* be
a new version of the firmware, and maybe that'll be able to load
bigger images.  I wouldn't count on it yet, though.

In any case, I'm filing a bug report now to keep track of this and
will look into this later when it's clear whether there'll be a new
version of Netrom (the netwinder firmware).

If the size restriction won't be fixed, debian-installer should check
the size during initrd generation.

   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Make sure the Netwinder image doesn't exceed NeTTrom's size limit.
     Closes: #345319.
   * Include essential kernel modules on the Netwinder cdrom initrd.
   * Fix a typo in the Cobalt preseed file.
   * Rename sb1-swarm-bn to sb1-bcm91250a for consistency.
   * Add 2.6 images on mips and mipel.
   * Add support for the Broadcom BCM91480B evaluation board (aka "BigSur").
   * Add support for the SGI O2 (IP32) machines (with R5000 CPU).
   * Put beep-udeb on the NSLU2 initrd so we can notify people when SSH is
   * Switch to 2.6.16 kernel on arm.
   * Put the input-modules udeb on the NSLU2 image so the beeper will work.
   * Remove (incomplete) LART and BAST support.
   * Remove 2.4 images on arm.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Split off PRESEED_SUITE from PRESEED, use this for the suite setting
     for development builds, and no longer unset PRESEED for release builds.
     Should fix cobalt issues.
   * Audited the x86 kernel parameter docs in the boot screens vs the 2.6.15
     kernel. Removed documentation for parameters that are not listed in the
     kernel's kernel-parameters.txt, and to a certian extent read the source
     to find places where kernel-parameters.txt is wrong, and removed those
     too. It's probably better to not document things than to document them
   * Modified kernel parameter docs to use the module.param=value syntax
     for all parameters that are owned by a loadable kernel module. The old
     param=value at the boot line won't work, since d-i doesn't pass kernel
     command line to modules. The new syntax requires rootskel 1.30 to work.
     (Not sure what module(s) own hd=, didn't change it yet.)
   * Remove docs for how to disable gdth, which harks back to a non-modular
   [ Christian Perrier ]
   * Rename Punjabi related files from pa_IN to pa.
   * Add the list of needed characters for Northern Sami
   * Add the list of needed characters for Thai
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Remove no longer used graphical characters from graphic.utf (formerly used
     in partman).
   * Move graphic.utf to needed-characters.
   * Rename all needed-character files to *.utf to simplify Makefile.
   * Remove 2.6 references from hppa config as 2.6 is now default; keep
     EXTRANAME=2.6/ for now in order to not break debian-cd.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Remove build dep on libdebian-installer4 now that all udeb deps are fixed
   * Update i386 to 2.6.16.
   * Copy library .so links from library-providing udebs into the udeblib
     directory along with the library files, otherwise mklibs doesn't see them.
     (Crossing fingers that this change, which has been tried once before,
     doesn't break something..)
   * Remove build dep on libdebconfclient0 since all relevant udeb deps are
   * Remove libdebconfclient0 from pkg-list/exclude too.
   * Remove build dep on libdiscover1 now that there's a libdiscover1-udeb
     and proper deps. Remove it from pkg-list/exclude too.
   * Correct comment for libbogl-dev build dep.
   * Add mips mipsel arm and armeb to arch list for the module-init-tools build
     dep since they all use 2.6 kernels now.
   * Limit modutils build dep to the arches that still use 2.4 [arm i386 mips
     mipsel powerpc s390 sparc].
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Update sparc to 2.6.16; re-enable 2.6 for sparc32.
   * kbd-chooser 1.25 will no longer use usb-mac keymaps for 2.6 based
     installations if AT keymaps are defined; therefore, no longer include
     usb-mac keymaps in images using a 2.6 kernel. Not touching pkg-lists files
     for mips(el) sb1-bcm91250a as they currently don't include AT keymaps.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Can't find any uses of cdrom-minimal and netboot-minimal, so removing
     those directories from pkg-lists.
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Update powerpc to 2.6.16.
   * Pass -r $(KERNELVERSION) to mkvmlinuz rather than -r $(KERNELMAJOR), so
     that it can tell the difference between 2.6.16 and earlier releases.
   * Build chrp initrds for powerpc64.
   * Restore usb-discover on 2.6 images; according to Martin-Ã?ric Racine it's
     still needed to load usbhid et al on some systems. Plus, it's tiny.
   * Add support for OS-specific pkg-lists entries: use lines like
     "gnumach-udeb [hurd]".
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Comment out nano-udeb and save-logs in the access floppy list to try to
     save space.
   * New usb-serial-modules package added to access floppy, although that
     floppy will now be well oversize.
   * Add kfreebsd and some missing hurd stuff to build dependency info.
     Closes: #363661
   * Remove ide stuff from access floppy, fixing its size problem. Don't know
     why ide stuff was ever on there.
   * Remove USB floppy and keychain support from boot floppy as it was out of
   [ Kyle McMartin ]
   * Update hppa to 2.6.16.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Also include libs named *.so.* when calling mklibs. Not including those
     results in missing symbols when building the graphical installer.
     Closes: #366441.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Patch from Samuel Thibault to support testing CD-ROM images in qemu.
     Closes: #367068
   * Add documentation for brltty= boot parameter (hope I got it right).
   * Apply Samuel Thibault's patch to add brltty-udeb to the cdrom, netboot,
     nativehd, and hd-media images. Closes: #355851
   * Mark usb-serial-modules added by brltty patch as optional, since they're
     not yet available on all arches.
   * Increase size of the hd-media images from 128 mb to 256 mb to make more
     room for the netinst.
   * Put modutils udebs back on 2.4/2.2 images since new busybox has dropped
     all support for that.
   * Stop building el-torito i386 image, it's too big due to above busybox
   * i386 floppy is full due to above busybox change, moved half the network
     stuff the the net-drivers floppy, which now must be used for all network
   * i386 bootfloppy is broken:
     mount: Couldn't setup loop device
     No idea why. Disabled i386 root and boot floppies. :-(
   * Add EXTRAUDEBS variable which can be used to pull in extra udebs for
     library reduction that are not on boot images.
   * Include cdebconf-newt-entropy in EXTRAUDEBS so that its symbols are in the
     boot images; since it is linked into cdebconf which uses the reduced libc.
   * No more parted build dep; those udeb deps are fixed.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Integrate graphical installer. Closes: #228808.
   [ Steve Langasek ]
   * Drop serial-modules from the alpha images, since this package is empty
     now in 2.6.16 apparently due to drivers being built into the kernel
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Integrate graphical installer on powerpc.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Workaround syslinux weirdness on hd-media images; when asked to boot
     2.6/linux, it tries to boot "2.6/l". Rename files out of directories to
     avoid this; the gtk initrd has the unappetizing name "initrdg.gz".
   * Fix amd64 gtk miniiso build.
   * Switch i386 to 2.6.16-2.
   [ Sven luther ]
   * Switch powerpc to 2.6.16-2 and disable non-working powerpc subarches.
     Closes: #373264.
   [ Martin Michlmayr ]
   * Switch mips to 2.6.16-2.
   * Switch arm to 2.6.16-2.
   * Switch mipsel to 2.6.16-2.
   * Add images for RiscPC (rpc).
   * Remove 2.4 images on mips.
   * Add 2.6 images for DECstation.
   * Remove 2.4 images on mipsel.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Switch sparc and amd64 to 2.6.16-2.
   * graphic.utf: add arrow characters needed for scrollbar display; remove
     unused/duplicate characters.
   * Remove needed_characters files for "level 4" languages (are not supported
     in newt frontend).
   * Rename needed_characters files for prospective languages so they're not
     included yet.
   * Switch hppa to 2.6.16-2.
   * Switch ia64 to 2.6.16-2.
   * Include USB-MAC keymaps again for powerpc with 2.6 kernels; they've been
     re-enabled in kbd-chooser for that architecture.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Switch from using DEBCONF_PRIORITY and sometimes debconf/priority to
     consistently using priority=low to boot to expert mode. Needs preseed
   * Change x86 help screen to document fb=false alias.
   * Remove libtextwrap1 from build deps and pkg-lists/exclude; cdebconf
     now uses the library udeb.
   [ Christian Perrier ]
   * Remove all *.prospective files as all these languages are only used in
     the graphical installer.
   [ Joey Hess ]
   * Remove mountfloppy from netboot/common list, add it to only arches that
     support floppies.
   * Don't include brltty on the netboot image for nslu2 machines,
     which uses network-console. Actually, I removed it from images for arches
     except for alpha, amd64, i386, ia64, and powerpc, since the other netboot
     images seem to lack serial-modules.
   * Remove local copy of slugimage and use the debian package.
   [ Frans Pop ]
   * Disable powerpc/apus as the 2.4 kernels it currently uses were removed
     from the archive.
   [ Colin Watson ]
   * Only try upx compression if UPX is defined; avoids build noise on amd64.
