Question: I downloaded the config for a kernel, small puppy linux. I built a build environment for it, and I can get everything too load for the most part.
But, I do not understand, why if I change the ramdisk size in the config, the kernel will not boot.
So, what possible impacts do change the kernel ramdisk default size have on the boot process?
I did not make it too large, I just made it a wee bit bigger (16MB vs 12 MB) but the system fails to mount the file system due to a loopback error.
Which I think is because the squashfs cannot be successfully decompressed due to the fact I added more modules and now it won't fit in the default ram disk of 12MB.
Its a guess of course. :-)
