David,

I just compiled on a 486DX/66 with 16MB RAM and 32MB swap. It took
about 30 minutes.

Are you accessing the source on a local disk drive or a network?  I just
compiled 1.2.5 on a 486DX/66 with 20MB RAM and 16MB swap all source is local
to my machine.  It took about 25-30 minutes.

Well...just to give you an idea of the other end of the hardware
scale...on a 486SX/33 with 4MB RAM and 12 MB swap it took 3 hours. So I
guess if it takes longer than that for you something's wrong! :)

I'm getting ready to compile the kernel version 1.2.5 for my system.
Does anyone have any idea as to how long this will take once I have all
of the "make config" questions answered?  I'm running on a 486DX2/66 w/
8 MB RAM and a 10 MB swap partition.  I've tried this earlier with an
different kernel and quit after waiting for 7+ hours.  Any ideas or
guesses will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

7 hours?  sheesh... on my 386DX-20 with 4 meg ram and 8 meg swap it only
took 4 hours...

make config
make dep ; make clean ; make zlilo

Anyways, 486DLC-40, 8 meg ram, 12 meg swap, about 30-40 min.  Of course,
only minimal net stuff, no scsi, only cdrom, sound, the basics.

Your machine is *broken*.  Even the little 386DX/20 with the really slow
single-threading ESDI drives and 4MB of RAM that I have
can compile a Linux kernel in 3 hours or so.  My 486DX2/66 takes about
20 minutes to compile a kernel.

I run Linux on 2 almost identical machines - DX2/66 w/ 16Mb swap. One has
4Mb of memory and took 4 hours to compile the 1.2.4 kernel. The other
machine has 16 Mb of memory and compiled 1.2.4 in 15 minutes.

The m*of this story is: Get More Memory.

I also have a 486DX2/66 with 8 meg and 12 meg swap.  All of the kernels
I've tried took about 20 minutes to compile.

You have the same spec as I;

I compiled with sound, SBPCD CDROM options, full networking with a
couple of ethernet cards support.

make config
make dep
make clean
make
make zlilo

All took 45 mins start to finish - not running X.

Compiling kernel 1.2.5

Post by Charles Streib » Sat, 29 Apr 1995 04:00:00


For another point of reference:  I have a 486DX2/66 with a 9ms-rated  hard disk.
I ran for a while with only 4Mb and a 32Mb swap(!) and, of course, thrashed
wildly while compiling the kernel, but it "only" took 2.5 hrs.  Now I have 20Mb,
and I don't even touch the swap file, and it finishes correctly in 15-20 minutes.

1. please help: newly compiled kernel cannot compile (2.0.34 slackware)

Hi all,

i been struggling with this for a week now,

sympton:

newly compiled kernel will not compile anything, only spit a bunch of debug
information at me. sometimes error 1 and error 2.
the error are not the same each time, if i compile a new kernel with it, , the
error is a bunch of debug code, if i compile modules, it's error 1 and 2, if i
compile BitchX, it's ....

this kernel boots just fine. loads everything just fine. it just can't compile
anything successfully.

fixes i tried(no luck):
1. checked all the include file soft links in place (as suggested in HOWTO)
2. re-install all over (a few times)
3. re-install liberaries. (they are all from new slackware 3.5 CD set)

i'm really running out of fix now, will anyone please let me know of any other
things to try?

(by the way guys, it seems that menuconfig won't do it for sound config, use
config will make it work)

i really gota compile ipforwarding and ip maquerading before the semester starts
or i'll have to share one ethernet plug with my roomate. i tried reading dox and
all , will anyone please help, thanks.)

Carol
