mklibs.sh, originally by Marcus Brinkmann.

http://cvs.debian.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/~checkout~/boot-floppies/scripts/rootdisk/mklibs.sh

The last one I tried was revision 1.17, but it the lastest looks ok.

Very effective on glibc:

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       887712 Mar 26 10:35 /lib/libc-2.1.3.so
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       369964 Mar 28 23:11 libc-2.1.3.so

This was a big help in getting a 2.4 kernel and an initrd with the needed
LVM files onto a 1.44MB floppy!

Regards,

Mark.
