Hey guys/gals. I want to install RH8.0 but I want a very minimal install, without choosing "minimal." Basically, first I didn't install the Apache Web Server through the Install, but somehow I ended up with having a httpd.conf and apachectl. Then I went and I unchecked a lot more stuff; I installed NO server software, no dhcp, no web serv, no mail server, nothing like that. Somehow, I ended with Sendmail, how can I install RH without Sendmail? I really didn't check the "mail sever" box.
Basically, I want to just have GNOME with a few tools and I want to compile stuff like Apache2 and Qmail and stuff from source, or even if I used sendmail, I want to do it manually - without reverting to like Linux From Scratch for now. Thanks for any everyone.
Just letting you know you're not the only one wondering what the hell is going on with RH.
I'm an old FreeBSD user and the simplicity that gave me from building a server where I knew exactly what was installed was great. I have to use RH now and building a recent RH8 system to try and do the same has proved very entertaining (NOT!).
I specifically selected NOT to install Apache 2, but alas, after an "rpm -qa", there was http-2.x-blah installed! OK, so the service wasn't started, but it was installed and I needed to install Apache 1.3.x with PHP and the like.
