large bzImage


when i do 'make bzImage' on 2.6.0, i get a 'vmlinux', which is 4.7mb-seems large to me, and lilo complains that it is too big. i tried to keep the built-ins to a minimum, with most built as modules. i also get a slew of unresolved symbol warnings under 'make modules'. thanks for any thoughts. (gcc322 in slack 9.0).

I would say that is abnormally large. Most of mine have been at 1.7mb or less, no more than that.

I'm using gcc-3.2.2 as well (in slack-9.1) and my 2.6.0 kernel is 1.78MB.

You guys weren't paying attention ;)

The file he listed is vmliux ... that's the UNCOMPRESSED
version ... bzImage lives in arch/i386/boot/bzImage

arch/i386/boot/bzImage != vmlinux :}

My 2.6 kernel is 1.08MB, btw :) .. not that I use it.


Cheers,
Tink

I don't know though, he's not really giving us any details either. I would assume he would only worry the size til after he's all set and done.. hmmm.. guess we'll fine out won't well

Amen to that one :)

Maybe new users should have to read the
smart-questions-FAQ when they sign up? ;)

Don't think that will happen but I do at times bug Jeremy to make it so when they sign up for the first time, they have to check off in check boxes each rule before they can click "Accept" to continue registering which I think would make them more aware of the rules since some seem to disregard them. Oh well, didn't mean to get this off topic.

Regards.

thanks, tinkster, that's what i needed to know. it's been awhile since i last did this and stuff doesn't seem in the same place(or i've just forgotten). i originally thought the modules business was part of a general screwup of mine, but now i believe that is a separate issue from my not locating bzImage(1.6mb, it turns out) and that i require a module-init-tools pkg
for this kernel. so, thanks again.
