2008-06-04 17:30:12 including VLC causes WARNING no initial console and no init found errors

I guess I'm not 100% sure that adding VLC is what caused this. I know it's not problems with VLC or ffmpeg that is causing this problem. I tend to think that it has more to do with the size of the resulting image. Has anyone else encountered this? I'm a little puzzled because I had a working jffs2 and VLC was the only package I added and I started getting these errors.
The filesystem partition is mapped from 0x20200000 - 0x2100000. The VLC image I built was about 16.4MB which ran it from 0x20200000 - 0x21213D08. Would I be correct in thinking that overrunning the partition would give me these kinds of errors?
If that is the case then I'm not entirely sure how I should go about increasing that partition boundary. 16.4MB is the smallest image I was able to make with VLC included... but 0x21000000 is only half the available flash. It doesn't seem to me like it should be a problem.

if you're dealing with a flash based filesystem, only the files that live within the specified partition regions will be usable. anything outside of the declared region is treated as if it doesnt exist at all (because it doesnt).
