Re: 2.4.21pre6 kernel Load problem on/for sun4u

Can I run "gzip -9vc image > image-2.4.21-pre6" on it and have the system boot from the resultant compressed image?

I get this then, which is smaller than the image I am currently booting from (though that image is a gzipped vmlinux file:

Now that I can get a kernel compile to work, I was wondering if there's
any  way to overcome the kernel size limit that seems to be hitting me.

The kernel I built seems to be too big to be loaded at boot time.

I however want to build a kernel with as few modules as possible.

I heard something along the lines of some new system in place to load
2.5.x  kernels [which are larger(?)].

Is there any way I can load a kernel image larger than ~1.3Mb on an
ultrasparc machine?

"make image" and then use arch/sparc64/boot/image instead of vmlinux.
