Kernel build problem

Kernel build problem

Post by The Scorpio » Sat, 10 May 1997 04:00:00

Hi All:

I just rebuild the latest linux kernel (2.0.30) on my machine.
Initially, the kernel was too large so I rebuild it with the
'make bzImage' command.  Now, when I try to boot linux with the new
kernel, I get the following error:

   LOADLIN v1.5 (c) 1994 Hans Lerman
   not enough memory below 90000h to load kernel

   Your current DOS/CPU configuration is:
       load buffer size:  0x80000   setup buffer size:  0x3E00
       total memory: 0x2000000
       CPU is in REAL mode
       SetupIntercept: YES, legal intercept
       stat1:  cpu in real 386 mode, no need to backswitch
       input params size 0x002
       input params:
            c:\linux\vmlinuz root=/dev/hdc1 ro

       LOADLIN started from DOS-prompt
   WARNING:  Not enough free memory below 90000h(load buffer size)

Any ideas of what is wrong, what needs to be done to solve this problem,
and/or where I can check to get a solution to this problem??

Many Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Upgrade LOADLIN to at least v1.6 (the newest is v1.6a).
