You just need that the root partition be large enough to contain all
of /bin, /sbin, /lib, with includes all applications which were in
/usr/bin and /usr/sbin before the merge. This is below 400MB in a basic
However many of the applications moved from /usr/bin to /bin are
dynamically linked with shared libraries in /usr/lib. Is that part of
the merge? That would be the biggest part. 2.8G on by Chimaera laptop.
That said, I agree that there is some confusion in mixing all
applications in the same directory, but, in my mind, it is mostly the
question of a sensible organization.
