I am trying to build Linux kernel. I am getting out of space after a while. I unpacked it in
/usr/src directory. It seems I have plenty of space. Can you please let me know what can be done about it. How much space does it need to compile & build kernel.
I am using VirtualBox.
root@vinay-VirtualBox:/usr/src/linux-126.96.36.199# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda1 6.9G 3.2G 3.4G 49% / none 669M 640K 668M 1% /dev none 675M 24K 675M 1% /dev/shm none 675M 96K 675M 1% /var/run none 675M 0 675M 0% /var/lock /dev/sr0 39M 39M 0 100% /media/VBOXADDITIONS_4.0.10_72479
I added a virtual disk to it & mounted it to /usr/src . It took about
6.5 GB to compile & build Linux kernel 188.8.131.52

Here are the statistics for a linux-3.19 compilation on ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS with no plus feature.
After I downloaded and decompressed it, without removing the compressed file, I had 2GB in use.
After the installation of gcc, make and after compilation (make and make modules), now I have 13GB in use.
