I know many people run their root filesystems on extrernal SD, or USB HDD, but I am still perservering with using the onboard flash to store my root filesystem.
Anyone got any tips for freeing up space? Whilst I'm not at a critical level (30% of the flash left), it's nice to ask these things in advance.My Tips:
I found out about the strip command (in binutils package), that strips debugging symbols from files, making them smaller, thats a VERY handy tip that saved me quite alot of space (I ran it on everything in /usr/bin!!!)
I also found out I can do the following to show the size of a directories sub directories (sorted):
du -sm * | sort -n
Any other tips for saving space? Anything that can be removed from the Ubuntu filesystem to save flash space?
