You can't use an initrd with the huge kernel, so you can't use the huge kernel with LVM.

If you have your rootfs on an lvm lv then you will need an initrd with lvm support ('-L') before the rootfs can be mounted. I don't know why Stephen believes you can't use an initrd with a huge kernel, but if you're going to need an initrd you might as well use the 'generic' kernel anyway.

From README_CRYPT:

Quote:
We also need to change the kernel file to a generic kernel, because lilo
is unable to combine the 'huge' kernels in Slackware 14.0 with an initrd
image - it will complain about "The initial RAM disk is too big to fit
between the kernel and the 15M-16M memory hole" if you try a 'huge'
kernel. We can live with that, since the 'huge' kernels are not meant
for day-to-day use anyway.

One could always just add "large-memory" to /etc/lilo.conf somewhere.
