reassign 420078 debian-installer retitle 420078 i386 root floppy too large thanks I've done some investigation and here are the relevant differences between an Etch and a daily build for the root floppy. Obviously the initrd has grown too large. -1423489 ./initrd.gz +1474718 ./initrd.gz The most important changes in the tree are: -4120 ./tree/bin/log-output +4312 ./tree/bin/log-output -88164 ./tree/lib/ld-linux.so.2 +117416 ./tree/lib/ld-linux.so.2 -681848 ./tree/lib/libc.so.6 +768304 ./tree/lib/libc.so.6 -47796 ./tree/lib/libresolv.so.2 +51860 ./tree/lib/libresolv.so.2 -62376 ./tree/usr/bin/lspci +64552 ./tree/usr/bin/lspci -10128 ./tree/usr/bin/main-menu +11060 ./tree/usr/bin/main-menu This looks very nice, but should make no difference for the initrd: -240577 ./tree/usr/share/misc/pci.ids +77746 ./tree/usr/share/misc/pci.ids.gz So, the main culprits are: - an 80k increase in libc - an 30k increase in ld-linux - a 4k increase in libresolv - a 2k increase in lspci (probably because of added gzip support) - a 2k increase in log-output - a 1k increase in main-menu Excluding pciutils-udeb from the root floppy would solve the problem (gets the initrd size down to 1365202). Not sure if that's really the best option though. I tried removing usb-discover, but that did not make much of a difference.
