Ok but the file romimage is 900K and my flash is but a measly 256K here
is my config file...
# Sample config file for Arbor PIA 671 SBC with DoC Millennium (as root)
# This will make a target directory of ./arbour
# Enable Serial Console for debugging
# Use 256KB Standard Flash as Normal BIOS
# use DOC MIL
# Use the internal VGA frame buffer device
# Path to your kernel (vmlinux)
# Kernel command line parameters
commandline root=/dev/hda1 console=tty0 console=ttyS0
The other question I have is this, the linux /usr/src/linux line points
to my kernel, but I'm wondering, when I normally build a kernel I copy
from /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage and not
/usr/src/linux/vmlinux so what exactly is the vmlinux part in /usr/src
and what is it used for? I mean I can see by using file that vmlinux us
a ELF File and all that, and bzImage is a x86 boot sector. but well, I
normally copy bzImage over and that is it... so don't know what the
vmlinux file is used for to tell you the truth, and up until now didn't
know it existed... Is that *supposed* to be the kernel I use to boot or
the vmlinux file?
