I am working on getting e-image working on the SL6000 tosa. as of right now I can only use e-image-core due to the fact that it is 34mb and the tosa has a ROOT_FLASH_SIZE=32. At least this is my undestanding.

What are the reasons I would not want to change this to using 45 instead or 32 or some other number?

Also if this is not where i need to make the changes where woudl this need to be done?

Currently you can not change your rootfs size in OZ because
a) updater.sh doesn't support repartitioning
b) the rootfs size is (IIRC) hardcoded into the kernel

But if you'd like to work on allowing the rootfs size to change (looking at what pdaX/cacko have used, etc., I'm sure people would be quite happy.

Heh, just be careful, updater.sh can be quite ugly laugh.gif
