Re: Problems with building the Alpha-bootdisks


the biggest problems with the alpha bootfloppies is the size of some
files. I think libary-reduction on alpha ist really a mess.
The size of root.bin is around 1,7 MB (it was 1,70 MB on A DS20, 1,72 MB on
a XP-1000). This will not fit on a normal 1,44 floppy. For the builds 
I used chroot sid, because base is not freeze yet and I used the
e2fsprogs-bs, because with the normal e2fsprogs the site of root.bin
was bigger.
