Recently I have compiled python 2.6.5 on ubuntu "hardy" 8.04. The script was as simple as it could be:
This successfully compile and install python and also make it default one. The problem is that all the libs in lib-dynload directory are too big in term of file size. They are around 4.5-5.0 mb each. I tried stripping out info by using command:
strip --strip-all *.so
It strips info from libs but still file size of all the modules is not less then 1.5-1.6 mb. I have no clue why this is happening.
Any pointers will greatly be appreciated.
