Re: giant initrd.img testing



> > I tried this. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it doesn't shrink the locale-archive at all. After I try to remove them, and then try to list it again, it shows only a few locales, so it looks like they got removed, but locale-archive is still the same size. I even checked the one on the build system, just to check if it maybe removed it from the build system, not from the install tree, but they are both unchanged.

The trick, apparently, is that after running localedef
--remove-from-archive, you move the resultant locale-archive to
locale-archive.tmpl, then run build-locale-archive.  The result is the
smaller file you expected.
