    Hi,

    I tried upgrading RHEL-6.5 to 3.5 Kernel.

    I got this error:

    cp: accessing `/lib/modules/3.5.0/kernel/sound/usb/usx2y': Not a directory
    INSTALL sound/usb/usx2y/snd-usb-usx2y.ko
    mkdir: cannot create directory `/lib/modules/3.5.0/kernel/sound': Not a directory
    cp: accessing `/lib/modules/3.5.0/kernel/sound/usb/usx2y': Not a directory
    INSTALL /lib/firmware/acenic/tg2.bin
    install: writing `/lib/firmware/acenic/tg2.bin': No space left on device
    make[1]: *** [/lib/firmware/acenic/tg2.bin] Error 1
    make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 2

    Please let know if we have any work arounds.

    Thank You,
    Munu

    I also get the error when install (make modules_install install)
    there only 512RAM, but I set 2GB swap (seems it won’t use swap when I check it via free -m)

    the error: ( hope for your help, thanks very much )

    DEPMOD 3.5.0
    /usr/src/linux-3.5/scripts/depmod.sh: line 37: 8277 Killed “$DEPMOD” “$@” “$KERNELRELEASE”
    make: *** [_modinst_post] Error 137

  3. Thank you for this guide. I just tested this successfully on a CentOS 6.4 system with kernel 3.9.4.

    Apart from the dependencies already mentioned in the article, on a freshly installed minimal CentOS 6.4 I also needed make and bc.

    Note that “make menuconfig” allows you to select the already running kernel’s configuration file (resides in /boot/), and accepts the defaults for all options that were introduced between the old and the new version of the kernel, whereas “make oldconfig” automatically finds the configuration file in /boot/ and asks you questions for all the new configuration options.

    Once again, thanks for the guide!

    Hi

    Upgrading CentOS 6.3 64-bit to 3.5 kernel.

    It is installed on an MSI netbook (wind u135) 1GB of RAM.

    I have successfully completed all the steps up to the 2nd last one .
    When doing a make modules_install install I get :

    Out of memory : Kill process 11891 (depmod) score 861 or sacrifice child
    Killed process 11891, UID 0, (depmod) total-vm:1961888kB, anon-rsss:850832kB,
    file-rss:8kB
    /usr/src/linux-3.5/scripts/depmod.sh: line 37:11891 Killed
    make: *** [modinst_post] Error 137

    Do I need more than 1GB of RAM to install the new kernel ? Any ideas for workarounds ?

    Thank you
