How To Find Memory Occupied By Installed *.ipk
« on: June 01, 2005, 02:09:24 pm »
Any ideas how to find memory occupied by programs from installed ipks?
For example:
10 MB - a.ipk
5MB - b.ipk
3MB - c.ipk

I need to clean a bit my internal memory but have no ideas what packages have more "weight" and what less.

There isn't a standard way of doing this.

ipkg files ipkname

will give you the list of files uncompressed from the Tarball and you could check their sizes individually. It won't tell you about files created by those apps or by the preinst/postinst scripts though.

I wrote a script for myself that 'wraps' around ipkg to allow easier manipulation of ipk files & I also included an installed size calculator. See attached. Just put the script in your path & then create several symbolic links to it & then run one of the symbolic links. For example:

Code: [Select]
# cd /usr/bin/
# ln -s ipkg-wrapper ipkg-size
# ln -s ipkg-wrapper ipkg-info
# ln -s ipkg-wrapper ipkg-files
# ipkg-size xmms-embedded
Total installed size: 461kb
HTH

EDIT: It wouldn't alow me to attach the file, so I'll just paste it here:

Code: [Select]
#!/usr/bin/env sh
# ipkg-wrapper
#
# This is a wrapper script for ipkg. The script performs various functions when called from the following valid symlinks:
#   ipkg-files  -   lists the files in the given package.
#   ipkg-info   -   shows the info of the given package.
#   ipkg-size   -   calculates the installed size of the given package. Note that the calculated size can be different from
#                   the file versus an installed package due to differences in block size, the size that ls returns rather
#                   than what's recorded in the package, the phase of the moon, etc. IOW, don't sweat the small stuff!

Thanks guys. grog's script looks exactly what I'm looking for. Just:

ipkg-size: arith: syntax error: "TOTALSIZE+1234"

or in case of Opera:

ipkg-size: arith: syntax error: "TOTALSIZE/1024"

ipkg-files works fine. ipkg-info shows nothing?

Hmm another problem might be that files stored on a jffs2 file system are compressed...

I don't know if the size given by ls take this into account so the size calculated with ls might be quite different from the actual place a file takes on the internal flash..depending on the compression.

pgas: I have no clue about the effects of jffs2 compression. Don't use it.

suruaZ: Do you get those errors multiple times? What's the output of this?

Code: [Select]
$ ls -l $(which opera)If you want, uncomment this line:

Code: [Select]
# set -x # TESTINGAnd then run this command:

Code: [Select]
$ ipkg-size opera 2>&1 | tee /var/tmp/wrapper.logAnd attach the log file & I'll figure out what's wrong.

Every time I use ipks-size. Just error differ - sometimes it's "TOTALSIZE+number" but sometimes "TOTALSIZE/1024"

What I found - if I issued the command with non-existed file ("ipkg-size zzz" for example) the output is the same. Seems it cann't find opera.

More problems with existed packages. For example:

ipkg-size zip 2>&1 | tee /var/tmp/wrapper.log

creates a big log (attached) with scanning of a lot unrelated files while zip instalation is only single file /usr/bin/zip

Interesting. 'ls' doesn't seem to be returning the file size. That would cause
a problem . You are issuing the command 'ls -l', that's 'el es space dash el',
right?  What do these commands come back with?

Code: [Select]
$ ls -l $(which ls)
$ ls -f

As well, does 'ipkg-files opera' return anything at all? I suspect it doesn't.

Does this output look similar to yours (similar being it results in a list of
numbers followed by the file name, not this list exactly)?

Code: [Select]
$ du /bin/* | head
1       /bin/addgroup
1       /bin/adduser
1       /bin/ash
1       /bin/bash
1       /bin/bashbug
536     /bin/busybox
1       /bin/cat
1       /bin/chgrp
1       /bin/chmod
1       /bin/chown

If it's similar, then this script modification might work better for you. It's
not as accurate, but I don't think we're going for the gold as far as accuracy
. This version should use the du command on your box to get the file sizes,
which in the busybox version only returns block size not byte size.

Let me know how it goes.

Nothing returns back, guess opera has other name for ipkg.

Unfortunately not - the same error like was before  

BTW you could attach scripts after renaming to .txt May be I got some copy-paste error?

Any ideas how to find memory occupied by programs from installed ipks?
For example:
10 MB - a.ipk
5MB - b.ipk
3MB - c.ipk

Since files from a pkg can be installed in many directories, it is difficult to "search" them out and come up with a total.

However, Here's another idea. On a terminal type 'df -h' _before_ you install the pkg, then type it again afterwards. It will give you a quck and easy way to see just how much room that last pkg consumes.

Naturally you can reverse the process if you already have the pkg installed (assuming you still keep the pkg around to re-install).

I hope this helps,

Sorry for my absence, suruaZ. If you're still interested in pursuing this, here's the ipkg-wrapper script arttached instead of pasted. It's not any different from my last post, but yah never know.

Looking back again at the first debug output you provided (wrapper.txt), it seems that the root of the problem is that your ipkg isn't finding any files. What ROM are you using? What does 'ipkg --version' return? Can you copy-n-paste the output of 'ipkg files opera' (or whatever the real package name is) & I'll take another look.

Sharp ROM 3.13

ipkg: unknown option --version
As I can see /home/QtPalmtop/bin/ipkg is link to the /usr/QtPalmtop.rom/bin/ipkg shell script. No ipkg executables found.

# ipkg files zip
#//usr
#//usr/bin
#//usr/bin/zip

After I have installed ipkg version 0.99.37 and have changed the link the output slightly changed:
# ipkg files zip
#/usr
#/usr/bin
#/usr/bin/zip

But ipkg-size linked to the latest wrapper retutns the same error
Attached is wrapper-log. Seems it scans more files than needs to find the size if zip installation.

That explains why there's problems in the first place. I use OZ, so some (most?) of the tools would be different. Not wrong, just different .

Both of these outputs have me worried. Are they copy-n-paste? Does ipkg really return hash marks '#' at the beginning of each line? That would be the source of the problem if it does.

Assuming that the output of 'which sed' returns the path to the program, try this latest version (attached). If you don't have sed installed, you'd have to find & install that package before you can try this out. I've since added a '-remove' option, but that won't affect us trying to fix the '-size'.

let's keep the fun going

I have sed installed. I have tested your last ipkg-wrapper with the same error...

Well I have a closer look onto wrapper debug output. This time I tried with file.ipkg installed. Please take a look onto wrapper-files.txt attached to see what files are installed first. Then look onto wrapper-size.txt. What is wrong there from my point of view:
1. The script processed lines with folders and links what is useless. The first three echos (224,304,2048) are folders and only forth (9612) is actually the filesize we need to sum in TOTALSIZE variable. Then again folder (1024) and link (15)... Must be something here to filter out folders and links;
2. After it processed all the lines from ipkg-files it starts to sum all echos and fails on the first step - /home/QtPalmtop/bin/ipkg-size: arith: syntax error: "TOTALSIZE+224". Note that 224 is the size of root folder echoed first.
It looks like command "TOTALSIZE=$((TOTALSIZE+$line))" has syntax error. After I have changed it to "$TOTALSIZE=$TOTALSIZE+$line" it starts to fails on the next line - "$((TOTALSIZE/1024))".
