using compressed kernel
After I installed RedHat 7.1 I took the vmlinuz file it created and installed it on the Dos side of my hard drive. Then I pointed loadlin at it and booted into Linux, no problem. That was about two months ago. Now I've recompiled my kernel as per the HOWTO and replaced the previous vmlinuz file with the new one. But now when I try to use loadlin I get the error message: Unrecognized compressed format. Error number 1. Shutting down system.
What's going on here? The new vmlinuz file has the same extenxions as the previous one. Only difference as far as I can tell is it's approx 1 meg whereas the earlier one was approx. 700k.
Anyone got any ideas?
