I want to create my own linux with only basic(core) functionality.
can any one suggest me minimal RPMS to create linux, Bcoz it will very helpful in my project.
I just want to install this custom linux successfully. I am not going to use it. so, I don't require any extra functionality from my custom linux.like internet, GUI, etc..
Before I have created ISO file of my custom linux, but it contains many RPMS, so I want to remove those RPMS and I will add only those RPMS which you will suggest me. but make sure that the RPMS suggested by you are sufficient to install and can boot my linux. as well as I am able to use terminal.
I know how to created ISO file with RPMS, so you can only provide me list of RPMS which are sufficient to install, boot and open the terminal..
sounds more like you are trying to create a stripped down version of an already existing distro, especially if you are just using binary packages and adding nothing new. perhaps you should look into LFS instead and use this as the base for your personal distro. that is after all what LFS is all about.

It's your project so you should do your research yourself. I agree CentOS minimal would provide a good starting point as it contains only 198 packages and its disk space requirements are minimal. Should you need help with your research then you need to put in an effort first: install it, list packages by group (-g name-of-group) and see if you can de-install those. Check package dependencies for those that aren't vital. Rinse, repeat. Then, when you've cut away most of them post your list of packages for review.
