Hello, I'm new to this list though I have looked through the archives. I'm having a problem installing a network boot kernel in my iopener. Since I don't have any experience compiling a kernel for network booting so I'm wondering if the parameters I passed to mknbi are incorrect or if there is some incompatibility issue between lilo versions 20 and 21 and mknbi-linux (from mknbi-1.0.tar.gz package)? Since the stock iopener kernel from LTSP doesn't initialize my Linksys USB100TX adapter, I compiled kernel 2.3.99pre9 on my Redhat 6.2 box and tagged it with mknbi-linux. The tagged kernel is 785K, the untagged bzImage is 780K. $mknbi-linux target=~/bzImage --output=~/boot/vmlinuzIO --append="ramdisk=1024" --rootdir=/tftpboot/lts/ltsroot This was all in a single line and it completed without any error messages. When I downloaded the kernel and tried to install it as a second kernel on my Iopener, lilo complained thet the kernel was *too big.* It is, in fact, *smaller* than the jailbait 5 kernel (849K) with which lilo has no problems. I tried different versions of lilo on the iopener and on my Redhat box but they all complain about the kernel being too big. When I added the pre-tagged kernel image to lilo.conf, lilo had no problem with it. The ltsp-tagged iopener kernel from the LTSP distribution (694K) doesn't present any problems to lilo either. Is this a problem with the syntax I'm using or a compatibility issue? Searching deja news I did see a number of postings about what seemed to be inexplicable problems where lilo was reporting kernels as being *too big.* There wasn't any pattern and the solutions offered - make bzImage rather than zImage, try different versions of lilo - aren't working for me. In addition to searching dejanews, I've looked through the netboot and linux terminal sever project archives but haven't seen any postings on this. Has anyone seen this before, see anything wrong with my mknbi-linux syntax, or have any suggestions about what I should try?
