What is Fedora Minimal installation ?


Open this image
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/.../pkg-group.png

Look closely under the check box Web Server, there is minimal installation. What is that ?
If i carry out minimal installation will each and every command that is there in Linux work ?

Hi,

A minimal install at any rate is a good start. Whatever you need can easily be installed afterwards.
Desktop or server?

Your link is to Fedora 13, which is no longer supported — you don't want to install that. Have a look here:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...ction-x86.html
As you see, you just get Linux and its tools with a command line interface. Unless you have very special needs, you may find the Customise Now option more useful.

"will each and every command that is there in Linux work"

No, not every command in linux but I'd guess that all that would be in a normal graphical install. The minimal is listed usually some place but may only contain the external commands.

Commands are either built in or added on. If for example you are missing what you feel you need then it can usually be installed via the package management or other ways.
