Hello,

This is the first link that resulted from searching 'convert Ubuntu desktop to server'. You'll see it has several pointers. Looks like you searched in the wrong place

Kind regards,

Eric

Do you want the kernel of ubuntu desktop... but with the server interface?!

I'm not a ubuntu's fan... but I think that if you only need dig you can install according to this page:

And this:

Let me know.
