2010-02-16 02:47:30     Reducing UClinux Image size

Hello Friends!

 

I am working on VADOL VOIP project. I am using Linphone and ALSA utils. In Future, I would be using HID and 2 line LCD. My current image size is 9.5 MB and would like to bring it down to 7MB. Currently I am using BF537 EZkit lite. I am going to have a 16 MB flash memory in my new hardware (customized) and would like to move this project in it. Please help me to bring down the image size.

 

Thanks in advance

the options were added after the 2009R1.1 release.  use `make vmImage.lzma` to get a lzma compressed image.
