difference in the size of the /lib/modules directory.
I installed the default 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp kernel that comes with RedHat and found that the size of the /lib/modules directory is about 30M.
But when I downloaded the source 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL.src rpm and compiled my own kernel I found that the size of the /lib/modules directory was 220M
I did a ls -lR | wc -l on both the directories above and observed that the no of files were the same, its only that the size of each file was 10 times more.
Has any of you seen this problem? Are there any flags that need to be set or something with the new 2.6 kernel? I tried using the -Os flag with cc but that did not seem to help.
Any help is appreciated.
