Debian in Less Than 500 MB?
I'm trying to install a barebone Debian Squeeze installation, hosting purely a mail server (postfix, dbmail, postgresql and fetchmail). No X server, no ssh, any admin will be done locally via CLI.
Two storage media involved: a small SSD for the system (512 MB) and a larger hardware RAID array for mail storage.
I have tried simulating this via VirtualBox. With just the "Standard System" option initially selected in tasksel, the installation takes up over 600 MB, more with the installation of my specifics.
I thought the "Standard System" was the smallest install possible? How can I go about stripping down the system so that I can be sure that only the things that I need (and their dependencies) are installed?
For reference, I did manage to make a smaller system in CentOS 6, but my final target is an ARM system with only Debian supported.
