Unfortunately the size of this cat Bodhi Linux 32bit Legacy image 'bodhi-5.0.0-legacy.iso' (725 Mb) exceeds the capacity of a CD (700 Mb)...
Does Bodhi really need two version of GCC libraries: /casper/filesystem.squashfs/usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/{6 and 7}???

Reduce Bodhi 5.0 legacy image size

I found the way to reduce size of the Bodhi Linux 5.0 Legacy image to fit a generic CD.
There are two unnecessary files in the filesystem.squashfs:
- boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-6-686 (3 579 664 bytes)
- boot/initrd.img-4.9.0-6-686 (44 792 600 bytes)
The installer script is smart enough to copy these files from from somewhere to the target partition (or create them someway) automatically.
Removing them from the squashfs filesystem image gives under 700 Mb bootable image. Bingo!

This have matter for those who have only CD drive (not DVD) in their legacy PC/Laptop.
