Minimal folders BeagleBone Black

Hey everyone,

I have a project that will involves collecting large amounts of data from some peripherals with the potential of not being able to access/delete files for some weeks. As such I’m trying to reduce amount of used storage on the beaglebone black down to a minimal setup. I’ve already stripped out cloud9 and some of the other default installs with the stable install package.

This leaves the two largest bocks of data remaining the ti/crt/pru/lib and the lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf.

Now I’m pretty sure I don’t want to remove the arm lib since there’s likely processes or diagnostics tools that will need some of the foundational c/cpp files.

But what about the PRU lib? is that required for the system to run (or to have certain peripheral systems running?), or can that be uninstalled?

Thanks in advance for your replies.
