Build failed ... failed to allocate 9217 blocks

Hi all,
I'm trying to build an x86 image (make -j1 V=s). But there comes an error "error: ext4_allocate_best_fit_partial: failed to allocate 9217 blocks, out of space?" How can I fix this?

Thank you.

A 350 MB ROM doesn't look right to me.

I have APU2C4 with 32GB mSATA SSD drive.

I solved the problem by increasing the root filesystem partition size.

make menuconfig -> Target Images -> Root filesystem partition size (in MB)
