Kernel compilation for Galaxy Ace

Guys,
Before I raise some expectations, let me clarify that I am not an expert developer.
I was trying to compile the kernel for SGA and was using the source from http://opensource.samsung.com/ ( Samsung open source portal )

I had used the instructions given in the README and was using g++ from http://www.codesourcery.com/sgpp/lit...al/release1592

When I try to compile the kernel ( stock settings ), it dumps out zImage of around 3Mb.
When I try to flash it using SGS kernel flasher (https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result) , it says file too big.

Any ideas where I might be going wrong.
Any help would be appreciated

The phones mentioned under supported were Samsung phones like Galaxy S. Captivate, Fascinate.

That is why, I thought I will give it a try. I have posted a query on SGS flasher thread and will get a reply soon.

Anyways,
Is there a way to know what is the limit on size of zImage supported by the device?
What are the other alternatives available for flashing this kernel ? Odin ?
Any way to check the sanity of this compiled kernel ( emulator )

Thanks in advance

you can't flash zImage for galaxy ace with SGS kernel flasher.

the step that you must to do is:
-dump boot.img from phone or grab from official firmware .tar.md5.
-unpack the boot.img
-replace the zImage (kernel) and keep the ramdisk
-repack boot.img
-make tar.md5
-flash with odin
