I tried to repeat what Rogério Brito did (using the same kernel-source (version 2.6.13-rc6-mm1), and the .config posted by Brito to the lkml). But when doing the hcopy command mentioned above I get the following: pc236:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc6# hcopy vmlinux.gz :zImage hcopy: "vmlinux.gz": volume full (No space left on device) pc236:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc6# Here is some info on the floppy (unmodified boot-floppy-hfs.img from woody) pc236:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc6# hmount /dev/fd0 Volume name is "Debian/PowerPC" Volume was created on Thu May 16 11:22:34 2002 Volume was last modified on Thu May 16 11:22:34 2002 Volume has 179200 bytes free pc236:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc6# ls -l vmlinux.gz -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1373583 Sep 12 16:06 vmlinux.gz pc236:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-rc6# file vmlinux.gz vmlinux.gz: gzip compressed data, was "vmlinux", from Unix, max compression -- Hans Ekbrand (http://sociologi.cjb.net) <email@example.com> A.
