Not really a problem as such but jsut wondering if anyone could explain this - when I build a product, the binary executable is roughly 50mb when done. When I tar it up and gzip it (tar -cvf name file; gzip -9 file) and unzip it the bianry is still 50mb. But when I create an rpm with it and install it, its only 12mb! The binary works fine with no problems, but is there some reason why it suddenly shrinks in size?
Any help is much appreciated,
