the problem of "args list too long"
I have trouble in running "make dep" when I try to compile linux kernel 2.4.18:
/bin/sh: scripts/mkdep: args list too long
make: *** [dep-files] error 126
I know this dued to long argument list "/home/gentlecm/downloads/XSBase255_Linux_CDROM/Kernel/2.4.18-rmk7-pxa1-XSBase/", which specifies a directory where kernel files reside.
I will have no problem if I put the kernel files to a directory of a short path, for instance, "/home/kernel/"
I better tell you my linux system is Ubuntu5.10, though I know the problem has nothing about what kind of linux my system is.
And, I have googled for this and get something like the kernel parameter "larg_ncargs_enabled", and linux command "xargs". But I don't know how to reset this kernel parameter and use this command for I could get little search results on them.
Any advice is appreciated.
