minimal slackware install


I have been surfing around a bit for finding a minimal install of slackware. I have compared the sources which I have found.

My intention was to have a fast slack with nothing missing and nothing superfluous.

I'd like to have:
- X (fluxbox)
- a webbrowser
- developping tools for compiling packages
I do NOT like to have:
- gnome, kde...
- 3 or 4 different webbrowser, text-editors...

this was what I came out:

a/ aaa_base-9.1.0-noarch-1

that's not a bad list there... See my HOWTO to see how much can be left out.
http://home.earthlink.net/~gnashley/...ix8_1howto.htm
I have a great 140-160MB install but without the /d packages.
Actually I have a list for a 20MB Slackware install! You can't do much with it, but it does illustrate what packages are absolutely essential.

For the love of God, use the search function.

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ckware+install

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ckware+install (scroll down on this one)

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ckware+install

This question keeps coming back again and again. Why not keep it in one thread?

BTW you might take a look at Linux From Scratch. It's a great step by step manual for compiling a complete distro from source code. Once you've gone through it, you'll have a much better understanding of what all the different packages do.

Enjoy!
