Long ago I noticed on Leap at least that the initial installed initrd is
significantly larger than rebuilds or those for newer kernels. I'd like to know
why, so I thought I could find (a) .conf file(s) on a boot from installation
media. No such luck, NAICT. There are few small files in
*/usr/lib/dracut/dracut.conf.d/, but they don't really look like they're big
enough, or contain the right kind of content, to be responsible:
/etc/dracut.conf.d/ doesn't exist, and neither /etc/dracut.conf.
multipath.conf only has comment and:
install_items+=" /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/multipath.conf "
dm-parts.conf only has comment and:
install_items+=" /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/11-dm-parts.rules "
50-sg3_utils.conf only has comment and:
install_items+=" /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/54-before-scsi-sg3_id.rules "
How can I find out what is responsible for making them significantly bigger?
