I’m starting to develop Elements applications for embedded systems using BeagleBone and Raspberry Pi microcomputers running a stripped down Linux environment (https://github.com/pmunts/muntsos). It is very, very cool to be able to develop these applications in Pascal in Visual Studio!
I’ve noticed that Linux Island applications require /usr/lib/gconv and its contents to be present on the target system. Without gconv, the program terminates with a SEG fault at startup. Now gconv provides some internationalization services, which I don’t need in an embedded system, and consumes 6 MB of storage.
Is there some way to configure a Linux Island project to remove the dependency upon internationalization services to save space? Sort of like the:
<RuntimeHostConfigurationOption Include="System.Globalization.Invariant" Value="true" />
feature you added to Elements for me a while ago for the similar issue with .Net Core applications?
