Last time I
got involved with kernel debug testing, I had to set aside
about 20 GB of disk space, even after I de-bloated the kernel config,
and it took about 2 1/2 hours to compile on a dual Athlon MP box.
That's not a "de-bloated" kernel config :)
No, symbolic debugging info was on. I got a patch from Alan Cox to
try against an -ac kernel, and he had debug stuff enabled and at
first a very general config. I did slim things down after fair amount
of trial and error getting new options wrong and re-builds. It was a
lot quicker with 2.2, or early 2.4, when I stopped bothering
re-compiling the kernel because you guys got the generic almost as
fast and I had a decent amount of memory for the times (512MiB).
Use the 'make localmodconfig' option in the
latest kernel version to
provide you with a config that is tuned for your machine. It only
selects the options that you have loaded modules for and makes for a
_much_ faster build.
I hope so, thanks :) I'm giving Fedora 11 a quick spin, then will
give the Kernel Git stuff a shot next week.
