...trying to install the latest stable kernel and I get this:
Code:
papapenguin linux-3.10.7-gentoo-r1 # cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-3.10.7-gentoo-r1
cp: error writing '/boot/kernel-3.10.7-gentoo-r1': No space left on device
cp: failed to extend '/boot/kernel-3.10.7-gentoo-r1': No space left on device

when unmounted, here is:
Code:
papapenguin ~ # df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3       145G   77G   61G  56% /
devtmpfs        1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           389M  584K  388M   1% /run
shm             1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev/shm
papapenguin ~ #

and when boot is mounted:
Code:

papapenguin ~ # df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3       145G   77G   61G  56% /
devtmpfs        1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev
tmpfs           389M  584K  388M   1% /run
shm             1.9G     0  1.9G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1        99M   99M     0 100% /boot
papapenguin ~ #

I removed old kernels...but must be missing something...

Your output confirms the error message. You have no space to install the kernel. Remove some files and try again.

papapenguin,

... removed old kernels from where ?

emerge -C ... and removing the sources from /usr/src/ don't count.
You need to remove old kernels and/or initramfs files from /boot, as its /boot thats full.

...thanks guys, but what is the command to remove the files from boot?

yes, Neddy, I did remove them from usr/src...just don't know how to remove them here...

...duh...I just had to mount /boot and then remove them directly from there using rm -rf...

I had kernels there from way back to 2.6 !
