Kernel compile error: what does it mean?
I was wondering if anyone can give me any insight on what this error means.
tools/build bootsect setup compressed/vmlinux.out CURRENT > zImage
Root device is (3, 2)
Boot sector 512 bytes.
Setup is 2604 bytes.
System is 832 kB
System is too big. Try using bzImage or modules.
make: *** [zImage] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-20.9/arch/i386/boot'
make: *** [zImage] Error 2
What I think this means is that the compressed kernel is more than the space I have on my boot partition. My boot partition is /dev/hda1 which has 102784 blocks. Am I understanding this correctly? Is this a case of me needing to expand my /dev/hda1 partition?
