Re: MariaDB Compile Size
I'd like to thank everyone for their help on this. I checked the size of some of the folders that were installed during my initial installation, and found that these were the biggest files:
I therefore disabled most of them using the appropriate options (such as -DWITHOUT_ROCKSDB_STORAGE_ENGINE=1, -DWITH_EMBEDDED_SERVER=OFF, -DWITH_MARIABACKUP=OFF etc.) and now the install size is down to 476 MB.
This is also a very helpful resource: https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/choosing-the-right-storage-engine/
More documentation on the storage engines during compile time, in the Compiling MariaDB From Source/Generic Build Instructions section of the knowledge base, or more instructions on the compile time options, would be useful.
