ramdisk-base is just where in ram to load the ramdisk. mkelfImage defaults to 8M. You are setting it to 20M. With the change to kernels to default them to running at 16M that only leaves 4M for the kernel which I expect is to little. Because mkelfImage is old and the hack is crude I don't mkelfImage is to stupid to realize that we have a problem.
20M is indeed to small. The ramdisk (incl. kernel modules) is on the order of 26M; I've tried setting it to 32M - this setting is what allows the kernel to actually start; however (as previously mentioned), the kernel is unable to mount the ramdisk. -- Troy Telford email@example.com
