Subject: [nylug-talk] Big Ass Kernels

Similarly, I wouldn't be able to put /lib on a partition of my external
disk, because I need the modules to initialize my SCSI adapter. (I
suppose I could recompile my kernel to include support for it.)

Lately, I've been building pretty monolithic kernels .. I'm not so keen on 
the whole module thing, I guess its just my System V upbringing. Redhat 
installs modular kernels with initial ramdisks by default, it kinda annoys 
me. Last night I did the 2.2.10 thing, I just made xconfig , picked all the 
crap I had, and threw it all in there and made dep and bzImage  and updated 

By the way, whats the upper limit on compressed kernel size? Mine is up to 
like 760k now...
