I found the problem. My oh my - I had
When I commented it out, the new compiled kernel is only 32MB whereas
the old one was 128 or so MB.
So I am happy about it now. However, I do not have a GENERIC kernel in
/boot and I will need it to do nextboot when I upgrade to 7.1.
I thought I'd use the procedure described here
to compile a generic kernel
# cd /usr/src
# env DESTDIR=/boot/GENERIC make kernel
# mv /boot/GENERIC/boot/kernel/* /boot/GENERIC
# rm -rf /boot/GENERIC/boot
When I make the GENERIC kernel, I again run out of space (I still have
about 60MB free in /). So I guess the system is probably using the
same "makeoptions DEBUG=-g" settings for the generic kernel. So my
question is where is the kernel conf file based on which the generic
kernel is compiled?
Is it in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC ?
Thank you in advance!
