ArchLinux upgrades have been getting smaller

Recommended Posts

I have been noticing this trend lately. Is it just my configuration or are any of you seeing it?

 

When I run

yaourt -Syu

command to update my system. I consistently see the Net Upgrade size as a negative number.

The code is shrinking.

 

Total Download Size: 82.63 MiB

That is the the difference between the new and the old package's installed size (new installed size vs old installed size).

Yes, I just think it's interesting that they tend to be shrinking the last few weeks.

And again, it shrinks! I am really loving this.

Keep up the good work KDE, Libre Office, and others.

Way to go Libre Office, systemd, and a few other little misc.

 

In the world of Operating systems this is truly great, amazing.....

You can't even run Windows 7 without 4 GB ram and at least 40 GB hard disk space, and Arch Linux, vanilla linux, is shrinking lots of packages almost everyday.

 

I love Linux! :wub:

Between this and clearing the cached packages no longer installed or needed I need a smaller HDD. It's lonely and echoey in there!

And again today.

Even with all the extra junk I have installed I could run this setup from an 8 GB flash stick (not counting my massive file storage partition).

Ok, so I still need the 16 GB stick, but it's down to just over 12 GB (/, /var, /var/log, /home).

And that is with a pretty full KDE install with a bunch of extras.

That's because I have kdebase and a bunch of kde apps as well as a bunch of gnome stuff. That way I have the best of both worlds. Oh, and LXDE just for fun.

Not really as I only have 9032 MB of applications:

The application I used to generate the chart is called pacgraph and is available in the Community repo:

 

Draws a graph of installed packages to PNG/SVG/GUI/console. Good for finding bloat.
