From David Lee on Thu, 22 Jun 2000

I would like to have a question about stripping binary and library files.
Actually I am building a Linux boot/root floppy disk. I need to fit in some huge shared library files, especially libc-2.1.1.so.6. (I am using Linux Mandrake 6.1). Reducing file size is necessary.
I think either objcopy or strip can be used. However, the Linux Bootdisk HOWTO says that only debug symbols should be removed (--strip-debug). What would happen if everything is removed (--strip-all)? I have tried and the resulting boot/root disk seems to be OK. However, something must be wrong ...
Thanks for your help.

Dav jeg syntes at det er en gode side du har med en masse gode brugbare råd . men det er ikke det jeg vil , je har et problem som du måske kan hjælpe mig med . Jeg har en 450 mhz p3 cpu som jeg gerne vil have overclocket jeg har et asus bundkort model :p2b/f1440bx agp atx. Jeg ved ikke om at jeg skal have noget extra køling på når det kun er til 500 mhz da mit bundkort ikke kan tage mere.en anden ting er at jeg ikke ved hvordan jeg gør så jeg håber at du vil hjølpe mig. JEg håber at du vil hlælpe mig med mine spørgsmål.
