Description William Cohen 2003-12-09 12:42:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030922

Description of problem:
Attempted to build custom kernel using code from
kernel-source-2.6.0-0.test11.1.100. The mkinitrd appears to have
problems because the module are too large due to the debug information.

Results from du of /lib/modules

311992  2.6.0-0.test11.1.100custom
30752   2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
50364   2.6.0-0.test11.1.99
51740   2.6.0-0.test11.1.99smp


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-source-2.6.0-0.test11.1.100

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-source-2.6.0-0.test11.1.100
2. cp kernel-2.6.0-test11-i686-smp.config .config; make
3. as root
   make modules_install
   make install
    

Actual Results:  make install does not complete the mkinitrd because
the modules are too large.

Expected Results:  the newly built kernel is installed and the "make
install" completes without error.

Additional info:

The following allowed the mkinitrd to work:

cd /lib/modules/2.6.0-0.test11.1.100custom/
find -path "*.ko" -exec strip -d {} \;
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2003-12-15 16:13:40 EST
fixed in latter mkinitrd.
