Re: Mounting Root on NFS problem (kernel 2.4.18)

In message <>you write:

Ok, I tried the following:

% mknbi-linux -x -k bzImage-linux-2.4.18-client -o vmlinuz-2.4.18-client -l eom -i -a "rw"
Kernel image file name  = bzImage-linux-2.4.18-client
Output file name        = vmlinuz-2.4.18-client
Kernel command line     = "auto root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=kernel nfsaddrs= rw"
mknbi-linux: kernel image too large

What's the size limit on the kernel?
