If you don't need OE to keep around the package source files (and

INHERIT += "rm_work"

This will significantly reduce the amount of disk space used.

I added this entry to my local.conf, but after a full build, my vmware image size is around 25.55GB. Before the build, it was around 12.5GB. 

Of this 2.5GB goes for the virtual memory RAM, so that makes it roughly around 13GB for a full omap3-console-image build.

I'm using Fedora 12 x86 64-bit.

So, is this okay, or should it have been significantly lower?
