DevHugePackages

Why does a local build produce such enormous packages?

Our build includes CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO in order to produce linux-debug-image packages. We then manually strip the modules after build.

If you re-use our config for your own build, your best bet is to change this line in the config:

  • CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y

To this:

  • # CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO is not set
