Additional info:

My ThinkPad has only 192MB. The 'initrd' image is 76+ MB
and the kernel won't even start.  Previous versions from
rawhide at least booted on this hardware.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-02-02 10:40:06 EST
The initrd is huge because the kernel stripping is failing.  And right after
that build went through, gcc 4.3 landed and getting the kernel building with it
is taking a little longer than expected.  Once the module size is fixed, things
will return to normal.
