Hey everyone,<br><br>I have stumbled upon posts by Carl-Daniel and Stefan while trying to get some<br>information why when I compile a kernel image with 7zip (LZMA) the kernel image doesn't load up.<br><br>The specific post is -
<a href="http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg06389.html">http://email@example.com/msg06389.html</a><br><br>I figured that maybe you could help diagnosing this problem as it seems that I have
<br>found the problem but I am not too sure actually.<br><br>I have been given an SDK based on Linux 2.6.10 for an embedded mips 4Kec (TI Avalanche series) cpu<br>to build an image from. When I build the image using GZIP (standard) the kernel boots fine but when I
<br>choose 7ZIP support for better compression, the 'make ram_zimage' procedure is working successfully<br>but when the image attempts to run off the device (via nfs) it writes:<br><br> Launching kernel decompressor.
<br> Starting LZMA Uncompression Algorithm.<br> Compressed file is LZMA format.<br> Kernel decompressor was successful ... launching kernel.<br><br>and nothing happens after that.<br>I've been attempting to figure out what is causing the kernel not to load and after reading
<br>the post by Carl-Daniel and Stefan about 7zip using different headers than "normal" LZMA sdk<br>I thought that this could be the problem.<br><br><br>I understand that this is not the best forum to ask, being a linuxbios mailing-list
<br>but I would appreciate your comments and any help on this issue as I am really<br>trying to understand what is going on.<br><br><br><br>Thanks,<br>Sincerely,<br>Liran.<br><br><br>
