Re: Smaller?

I have a shell script I wrote to compute the transitive closure of package dependencies. On my alpha, running Debian Sarge, I computed the transitive closure of the packages marked essential along with:


That yielded 68 packages. Using the Installed-Size field of the 68 packages, I calculated 122784. It looks like the Installed-Size field in packages is in KB, so that is about 119MB.

I can send you the list of packages if you are interested.

(then removing the old 2.2.20 kernel), I still am left with about 260mb install. I tried doing a dist upgrade to sarge, but there isn't room on
the drive -- it's the original 340mb. I suppose I could make swap
smaller, but I was hoping to get this on a 128 CF. Or at least a 256mb. Has anyone been able to use the uclibc stuff with alpha? I've tried
using buildroot and uclibc to build a small system, but it never
finishes the compile. Is there anything else small for the alpha?
There's quite a few for intel, but none for alpha?
