Re: building compressed kernel

> Does anyone on the list know how to make compressed sparc kernels?

  I can't see the point in doing such a thing.
  Sparc does not have the size limitation during boot associated to 
  C hardware, so, compressing the kernel is not really necessary as
  to that matter. If you really have to compress it (hard disk
  usage being a problem ?), well, gzip your vmlinux and try to boot that :-)

  It however appears that some machines (slower Sparcs) don't really
  like booting compressed kernels.
