Subject: question about initramfs
Date: Thu, 28 Feb 2008 09:54:47 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080228095447.d9rvhyxegw8o00gs@mail.dei.unipd.it> (raw)

Hi,

I'm facing a weird problem with initramfs on TI dm6446. I use  
initramfs to hold the binary the device has to execute, so that I can  
store it a flash memory and boot it with uboot without having to use a  
disk.

My problem is that I can boot images of 2.4M but 2.6M sized images  
hang the boot process and kernel is never booted, it just hangs.

I'm trying to identify where the problem is, whether it is related to  
the bootloader or the build mechanism.

So I'm asking you if there is any limitation in terms of size to  
initramfs. If not, where do you think the problem might reside?

Thanks.
