Unload (modprobe -r) all modules you think you will never use before running that script.

I wouldn't complain about 22MB when official minimal requirement is 46 MB ;)

Lowering depth and/or resolution of framebuffer and/or X could squeeze out some more, short of omitting framebuffer and/or X entirely.

Hi Rich,

Output is

Code: [Select]
acpi_cpufreq
mperf
cpufreq_userspace
cpufreq_conservative
cpufreq_powersave
cpufreq_stats
squashfs
pcspkr
scsi_wait_scan
loop

I'm not posting the full output because I have to manually type everything out, but the value for the "Size" column is 12288 for nearly all of them.

What about transferring a file?
Code: [Select]
lsmod > lsmod.log

Hi cortman
Code: [Select]
lsmod > lsmod.txtThen you can copy  lsmod.txt  to a USB thumb and copy/paste on the machine you post from.

acpi_cpufreq           12288  0
mperf                  12288  1 acpi_cpufreq
cpufreq_userspace      12288  0
cpufreq_conservative    12288  0
cpufreq_powersave      12288  0
cpufreq_stats          12288  0
squashfs               24576  8
pcspkr                 12288  0
scsi_wait_scan         12288  0

Thanks for all the help so far!

And I can keep these from loading at boot by adding a blacklist="acpi_cpufreq" boot code? (that particular module as an example)?

Probably, but see reply #15 which could discard unused modules from initrd entirely.
