my hello world works fine on ARM9 uClinux kernel. the size of the image file after i execute make image command is around 1.3 MB. when I add some more sample codes and make the image file again. the command prompt on the ARM board do not work properly. what is the logical explanation of this problem? some kilo bites more of my sample file make the uclinux to not work properly.

any hint will be apreciated
