I'd stripp all that is not needed.
Last time I built a similar emergency system I had, if I remember correctly: busybox, wireless tools,
dropbera, vncviewer, dresktop, tinyX, fluxbox and limited hotplug/usb functionality in something
I think that's still avalible on freshmeat/sourceforge ... look for clash ... amongst the downloads there
should be a small iso images.
I had a look it's still avalible:
It has been unmaintained since then ans version 3 remains unfixed.
BTW: the stuff I wrote at the time I had evidently less experience might be full of stuff I myself would find
infuriating right now :-D
This time I'll be aiming at making the AP/3G/nas/router fit in a smaller footprint.
The idea would be to have: busybox, wireless tools, udev, usb utils, dropbear, nand utilities and possibly
webserver and some web oriented scripting language.
Web stuff aside it could be a nice small rescue system.
My current armedslack miniroot AP/3G/nas/router fits in the 229Mb data mtd partition. I'm targeting the
32Mb root mtd partition for the reduced busybox setup. But in 32Mb I may not be able to get the web scripting
language ... I'll see what I can manage.
