Am first time user of LinuxBIOS though I have been introduced long time ago.

After going thru' QEMU build tutorial from LinuxBIOS website,
downloaded and started building the packages in the order given.

mkelfImagev2.7 build went thru without problems (Am using vmlinuz and
initrd of Linux kernel 2.6.15 or 2.6.17)

LinuxBIOSV2-2405 was the next. As per the doc, edited ROM_SIZE and the
laoction of linux.elf. After running buildtarget without problems,
make failed with the following errors.


gcc -m32 -nostdlib -nostartfiles -static -o linuxbios -T ldscript.ld crt0.o
nm -n linuxbios | sort > linuxbios.map
objcopy --gap-fill 0xff -O binary linuxbios linuxbios.strip
cp -f /lnx_data/lnx_apps/QEMU/mkelfImage-2.7/linux.elf payload
./buildrom linuxbios.strip linuxbios.rom payload 0x10000 0x200000
payload (2527194) + linuxbios (65536) size larger than ROM (2097152) size!
make[1]: *** [linuxbios.rom] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [image/linuxbios.rom] Error 1


Would like to have at least the Kernel v2.6.15 into LinuxBIOS.
Any ideas how it is possible to accomodate this ?
