2011-10-07 02:54:50 flashing the ADZS-BF537-STAMP with the latest uClinux-dist
Rosia Nicolae (ROMANIA)
The ADZS-BF537-STAMP came with 2007R1.1 U-Boot and uClinux flashed. I have flashed the latest U-Boot and I have noticed that the uImage provided for the BF537-STAMP has 4.5 Mb. Is this image supposed to be flashed? Because as far as I know, the board has 4 MB of flash. If not, can you suggest which options could reduce the image size under 4 MB?
Thanks in advance,

The easiest thing is to turn prettymuch every userspace app off except busybox. Just dumping the big test apps which drag in libjpeg and suchlike is probably sufficient.
This question keeps on appearing quite often here - isn't it time we had a more useful defconfig maybe?

As Ian mentioned, you deselect the items you don't need. Check the FAQ "My uImage is too large to burn in my flash" in http://docs.blackfin.uclinux.org/doku.php?id=faq

The uImage is packaged for RAM boot. In order to fit everything into 4M flash, you'd better put kernel vmImage and jffs2 rootfs image into flash respectively.
