Remove Rebuild Dynamic Linker Cache job from ISO made by Archiso

I'm creating an ISO by using Archiso tool and I see that the process taking more time during the first boot is the "Rebuild Dynamic Linker Cache" and its start job reaches several minutes (around 10 min). It should be used to create "/etc/ld.so.cache".

Is there a way to prevent the start of this job on a created Arch ISO?

That is the /usr/lib/systemd/system/ldconfig.service running .

Maybe add a copy of your local /etc/ld.so.cache to the iso ?


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

I was thinking to add a copy of my /etc/ld.so.cache but, in case I rebuild the ISO by Archiso in order to get the same ISO with the most updated packages, it means that I need to replace ld.so.cache manually with the new one related to this just created updated ISO?

See ldconfig.8 the -r option.  You could also chroot in then generate it.  You could also try masking ldconfig.service and see how the performance compares.
