Also, download size has stayed a similar size for now. I kept the image at 2 gigs, however i will hopefully be cutting it down more tonight and resizing the image itself.
If anyone has installed it and notice any other packages that could be stripped, feel free to shoot me a pm or comment on my blog and i can strip it down further
In Your image there are modules for cutdown kernel version and full kernel. You can leave just for full kernell if using it. When preparing images for downloading, it is good practice to zerofill freespace for better compression. More details in post from a highly respected mpthompson
When I was checking all posted tutorials in forum, made raspbian test image to fit 1GB SD card. With XBMC, Quake3(including demo packs), nginx, php5-fpm, owncloud, rpi-update, links, htop, tmux, mocp, mc, localepurge and etc. Removing locales saves a lot of space. Download size was less than 200MB. My raspi is self hosting it on http://valkam.net/raspbian/
. Now I'm using raspi also for:
* private git server with gitolite,
* data mining server with sqlite3 db, wget, bash and awk scripts
* playing internet radio streams
All at same time and there are still a lot free resources. I love it.
