$cp /boot/config /usr/src/linux-2.4.20/.config
(here I change processor family to athlon to
accomidate th athlon 1.4 GHz Thunderbird)
after copying the new image to /boot , doing the
necessary file switching with mv and editing /etc/lilo.conf
I run lilo which exits with an error that the image is too
large to be used.
I have searched the web in general and the LDP homepage
yet no kernel tutorials seem to get between the basic five-step
process and the kernel internals.
However, I would like to understand the configuration process
in more depth as I would also like to know
why modifying one variable results in a kernel too large
to fit in the available space of the MBR.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
