Today I run out if diskpscae when building a KOTD with
configuration from sources. I found that the build now nees 3.5G disk
space. the same build of 220.127.116.11-9 only needs 888M.
The installation also need much more spae than before :
rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2511648 29. Jan 04:35 vmlinuz-18.104.22.168-
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2576096 5. Dez 03:52 vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-9-default
and the modules
and in /lib/modules:
Is that change intended ?
Very likely you build with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO and didn't stripped the
.debuginfo sections from all the kernel modules. In the buildservice and in
the shipped product we strip this debuginfo into "debug"-subpackages
On doubt just run:
# objdump -h /lib/modules/2.6.*/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko | grep debug_info
If you don't plan to use kdb, crash, lcrash, systemtap, gdb, ... or so then
you might want to build with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=n
Or you can look into "objcopy" how to strip manually the debuginfo sections.
