Minimal Install Tagfiles --- Slack 10?


Does anyone out there have a custom set of tagfiles for a minimal install of Slack 10 with X ? I did Google for it, nothing.

Alot of 8.0, 9.1 minimal installs tho.
Seems like quite a few changes.

Go to the Amigo Linux forum on this page. There is excellent info there for minimalist Slackware installs on their homepage.

You can install 9.1 then upgrade it with swaret or a similar tool or
use the filelists from amigo as a guideline, substituting as needed.

Nitrox, you can see what packages (the names) are in the Amigo linux documentation and install the same packages but from Slackware 10, there aren't too many changes, just new versions so as long as you install the same packages it should be fine.

Not a big fan of swaret.. Hear its a great tool tho.

Think Ill just match up the packages from 9.1 and 10.0
and go from there, maybe make new tagfiles like that.

Thanks gbonvehi.
