how to reduce /proc size
i'm runnin debian sarge 2.6.7-i386 on a laptop with ethernet, sound, ati graphics, wireless modules with very limited space. i have /, /usr, /var, /tmp, /home, and /boot are all on seperate partitions. due to a gross careless mistake in installation, i now have a 0.5 GB / partition.
the problem is i have a unusually big /proc folder ~ 385 MB. (as opposed to a friend of mine running gentoo with 180 MB /proc). and my question are a) are there ways to reduce this /proc and if so how? b) if i can't reduce this /proc how can i resize / without reinstallation?
thanks a bunch!
