Thank you. OK, not worrying about the architecture, because it is a similar size with amd64 anyway, is there a "best practise" method to minimise this? By your reply it seems the udebs are required regardless of what installer is used. Is this correct? I only want a live system that can be installed. I don't want the installer to "pull packages" from a pool like a regular installer if I can stop it. Is this possible with Debian Live?

What about the debs (not the udebs)? are they also required?
