Just to add a few things. I just did a complete x86_64 rebuild with the
most recent kernel (4.17.7), binutils, util-linux, etc.
I did get some new test failures:
106-perl-5.28.0:FAILED at test 7
I have not yet investigated those.
I also did some experimenting with a separate /usr partition. The
system booted properly. Here is some sizing data:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/root 20G 3.4G 16G 18% /
/dev/sda24 9.8G 806M 8.5G 9% /usr
The bottom line is that after removing jhalfs, tools, and sources, the
size needed for the root partition is only about 150 MB. For
installations that use encrypted partitions, RAID, etc, the root
partition would be to be a bit higher. I'd probably go with 500 MB, but
as a proof of concept, this works nicely.
