i.mx28 and large kernel with initramfs = oom killer

Question asked by oskiercz on May 13, 2014

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to use kernel combined with initramfs which is 8MB big (uncompressed ~25MB), but when kernel is booting some oom-killer actions are taken (output attached). I have 128MB of RAM so size of memory is not an issue. I suspect that problem is that uncompressed initramfs + kernel overlaps some memory region which should not be touched. Is the size of memory for uncompressed kernel along with initramfs limited somehow? Could anybody help me? I can add that when kernel and initramfs image are separated then system works fine.

Thanks
