Why has SysResCD become 40% fatter? [solved]

Postby bugmenotplease » 10 May 2013, 18:50

SysResCD 3.3.0

libc-2.15.so 1,357,024 bytes
libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0.13.4 11,776,044 bytes
smbd 7,042,168 bytes

SysResCD 3.6.0

libc-2.15.so 1,561,888 bytes - 15% bigger
libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0.13.4 16,269,556 bytes - 38% bigger
smbd 9,830,200 bytes - 40% bigger

What the hell?

You used "-Os" now you use "-O3 -g3 -march=super-duper" or what?

Please, remove the fat.

The size increase was due to the upgrade of gcc from 4.4 to 4.6 in recent releases. It has been downgraded in SystemRescueCd-3.7.0 and it allowed to save 20 MB on the size of the ISO.
