#646 closed defect (fixed)

mindi BOOT_SIZE does not fit Ubuntu 12.04

Reported by: victor gattegno Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.0.3
Component: mindi Version: 3.0.2
Severity: normal Keywords: mindi ubuntu BOOT_SIZE


I tested mindi 2.1.3 with Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, with the default values


BOOT_SIZE = 40960

and I got in mindi.log:

Kernel size = 4860 K
Ramdisk free = 1420 K
ERROR: Sorry, your kernel is too big for your image

After I increased BOOT_SIZE, mindi succeeded, I modified: BOOT_SIZE=65600, and I got in mindi.log:

INFO: Copying /tmp/mindi.XQHzUOSSUz/initrd.img to /tmp/mindi.XQHzUOSSUz/mountpoint.5351/initrd.img...
INFO: Free space left on image = 26014 KB
INFO: Max kernel size on 65600 KB image (est'd) = 30874 K
INFO: mindi_lib = /usr/lib/mindi
INFO: Created bootable ISO image at /var/cache/mindi/mindi.iso

For info (for the visitors), BOOT_SIZE value can be uncommented and increased in /etc/mindi/mindi.conf file.

Another solution (not prefered) is to modify it in /usr/sbin/mindi shell-script.

Applied in rev [3033]. Thanks for your checks ! Will also apply to fedora 17 as it seems from the mondo ML.
