To be more detailed, I'm running Archlinux ARM on Android device through chroot. When I need the GUI, I use androidVNC. But Archlinux image file contains all the packages for standalone OS (kernel with drivers, for example). But when I chroot I still use Android kernel, so I want to figure out what packages I can safely remove from Archlinux image file in order still be able run it from Android. For example, I removed kernel and initramfs, nouveau video drivers (it seems to me I can remove MESA driver too).

I suggest you look at wiki.openvz.org/Archlinux_Template_creation or search for 'minimal arch chroot'. You basically only need the absolute bare minimum, i.e. a chroot with a working package manager. Then just install what you need. –  ce4 Jan 27 '13 at 20:37
