This size is totally unacceptable. Just why is the package this large? Somehow OpenVZ's own builds (vzkernel*) are a lot smaller (27 MB for the main binary package). I think ours should be similar to theirs. > Note that almost 400 Mb for the kernel itself is mostly filled by kernel > modules. Do they build a lot fewer modules in vzkernel*? How does this size compare to RHEL6's official kernel* packages? Thanks, Alexander
