I am compiling linux kernel 3.0.1
My operating system is Ubuntu 11.04
The source is in
Though there is no free space remain in
/ the compilation is still going on .. !
What is happening exactly ?? Should I stop it ?
Are you compiling as root? I don't know if the free space reported by
df takes into account the typical 5% superuser reservation.
Also it could be the kernel hasn't flushed the disk cache yet.
It is also possible your
/usr is mounted on a separate partition. This is quite likely if you took the defaults during your Ubuntu install (unless something has changed since the last time I used Ubuntu...)
If you run out of disk space and the compilation fails, free up some disk space and resume the compilation by issuing the
make command again.
Bad idea to let
/ run out of space. I would try to address that ASAP.
