I just completed a RH 6.2 installation and my ethernet card is finally working so I'm reading to start installing and removing the modules I feel I need and don't need.
I understand that RPM can assist me in this task. Being a 6.2 dist most the software that I do want (PostgreSQL, mySQL, Apache, PHP, Perl, JDK) are out-dated or not installed.
What's the best method to remove these items? I want to strip my system down to the "bare bones" and then start to build it up.
Also generally, from a web server standpoint, is it best to install Apache and then various platforms like Perl, PHP, ColdFusio etc, or vice-versa, or does it not matter (which would be great
Any advice or help, please let me know. The RPM HOWTO seemed to focus more on building the modules and installing and didn't focus a whole lot on removing modules.
