I'm using Kiwi to build a boot CD based on OpenSUSE 13.1. I want the disk ISO image to be as tiny as possible. I managed to get the read-only filesystem down to only 100MB, but for reasons unknown, the
initrd file is 80MB on its own. (!!)
- Is there some way I can convince Kiwi to produce a smaller initrd?
- Is there a way to take the initrd image that Kiwi has produced and shrink it somehow?
initrd file is actually an initramfs image. But you probably knew that..
Possibly relevant: If I unpack
initrd, I get the following:
# du -d1 -h . 12K ./root 4.0K ./selinux 4.0K ./tmp 20K ./run 4.0K ./mnt 304K ./image 16K ./boot 8.8M ./etc 760K ./var 4.0K ./sys 4.0K ./proc 8.0K ./dev 1.1M ./bin 97M ./usr 4.0K ./opt 1.7M ./sbin 88M ./lib 198M .
