I have a Ultrasprarc1/167, and I'm trying to load gentoo from a net boot. It works up to the point where I reboot the machine and try to load the kernel from SILO. I get the following error message:


Uncompressing image...
\

Decompression error: uncompressed image too long - wouldn't fit in destination

Image not found...try again
boot:



Any ideas?
Please help,

i tried compiling stuff as modules, i got a lot of unresolved symbols. It would be helpful if someone could mail me a copy of their .config file from /usr/src/linux.
