removing kernel sources
I have the kernel source tree on a machine with very limited space.
I have compiled from it but it is just plain occupying too much space. I
want to get rid of it now. Just about anything that could be done as a
module was. Following the instructions in the README file in the root of
the src tree I have made /usr/include/asm /usr/include/linux and
/usr/include/scsi symlinks to the respective include directories of the src
tree (oh, BTW this is 2.0.30).
Q: Can I
1) restore these three directories by deleting the symlinks doing
mkdir /usr/include/xxxxx and then copying from the pointed to src
directories to the newly recreated /usr/include/xxxx directories
2) delete the source tree
and still have a bootable runnable system ? I guess it is the module stuff
that worries me the most. Is there anything in the source tree, now that I
have compiled from it a couple of times, that is necessary to the continued
health of the box ?
