comment RAMDISK incomplete write error kernel panic
Thank you, @richard for the link, that 'longterm' in the link indicates its stable! And yes you may be right above my link may not be ideal place to download source.

comment RAMDISK incomplete write error kernel panic
$richard: As I wrote in my earlier comment, I got the source from kernel.org. To be specific: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-2.6.32.y.git;a=summary This page has a section called 'shortlog': 2011-01-07 Greg Kroah... Linux 2.6.32.28 master v2.6.32.28. I clicked on snapshot option on the same line and it starts downloading the gz version.

comment RAMDISK incomplete write error kernel panic
@richard: You are right, one has to have a good understanding before fixing the errors in Kernel. However I came across errors which were purely (surprisingly all) typos, like struct was syruct, cache was csche, etc. or misspelled function names. So the errors were like implicit declaration of function, etc. I think, these can be resolved by having a look at the header files, or other functions in the source itself. I was really surprised to see such issues in source one which was declared stable at kernel.org!

@Gilles: I just copied the oldconfig, renamed and used it for the new kernel. I did not do any change. However I did notice the .config changed after the build process was complete. Not sure when that change happened.

@Tshepang: Yes, cp and make may not require sudo. I thought since it is kernel related operations, superuser power may be required...which now I realize was not required. Well, I compiled this list of instructions from a few sites, and in the past it has worked correctly.

Thank you, @Gilles. I think, in python solution, os.strerror is required..

Now, that -123 issue is resolved. Thank you @Keith! The bigger query: (in general) how to track the error codes/numbers in Linux..what path is ideal for it?

I did not unmount the card before removing it. Do we need to unmount the SD/MMC cards? In the driver implementation (drivers/mmc/core/core.c), it is assumed that card could be removed during the life cycle. I agree that there may be an on-going query (status inquiry, etc.) from kernel (bus) side, and it did not find the medium and raised this error.
