Subject2.4.27, alpha arch, make bootimage and make bootpfile fails
Hello kernel Gurus!

[debian/woody on alpha sx165/lx164, gcc-3.3.4]

We need to netboot our alphas (because booting from the SCSI controllers
is not an option, they are not supported by the SRM console) and I try
to make a bootp image of our kernel.

When doing this on our alpha the
make bootimage
and the
make bootpfile
both bail out with:
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.27/arch/alpha/boot'
tools/objstrip -v /usr/src/linux-2.4.27/vmlinux vmlinux.nh

and similar with bootpfile

Is there a way around this, we definitely need the bootp image.

Thanks a lot and all the best
