I'm working on a custom Ubuntu 10.04 live cd, and I've found updating the Plymouth splash uses up a lot more disk space. The culprit seems to be the command update-initramfs -u, which is needed to apply the new splash image. I'm guessing it's making a new intrd image or something. Can anyone help?
Live CDs don't really have an initrd image in the filesystem. I just had to move it into the casper directory of the disk, name it initrd.lz, and it worked! There was a gain about about 3MB, but that's ok.
