installing and compiling linux kernel
I have downloaded the newest most stable Linux kernel, 22.214.171.124.
I thought I would test this using VirtualBox. So I create a dynamically sized hard disk of 4 GB. And installed CentOS 5.3 with just the minimum packages, just the development libs and development tools.
I unzipped in the /usr/src directory.
I setup the make menuconfig with just the default settings.
After that I ran make and got the following error:
net/bluetooth/hci_sysfs.o: final close failed: No space left on device make: *** [net/bluetooth/hci_sysfs.o] Error 1 make: *** [net/bluetooth] Error 2 make: *** [net] Error 2
# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 3.3G 3.3G 0 100% / /dev/hda1 99M 12M 82M 13% /boot tmpfs 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm
How much size should I give when compiling and installing a Linux kernel? Are there any guidelines to follow when doing this? This is my first time, so just experimenting with this.
