I get the source rpm and install it.

Find the file “olpc-2.6.tar.bz2” inside and decompressing it.

I get into linux-2.6.30 document and cp the kernel-xo1.5-custom.config to

Type #make menuconfig to choose same option what I need and save.

Finally, type #make vmlinux to produce vmlinux file.

But this file is almost 70mb it is too big to load as a vmlinuz file.

Did I miss some command or It need to compiler with other gcc? not x86

The size of vmlinuz in OLPC /boot document is about 2~3mb.

What can I do?
