I'm writing these lines on a nicely trimmed-down KDE 4.8.5 on Slackware64 14.0.

Here's the almost finished HOWTO (in french):

And here are various files and scripts needed for the setup:

One short word of explanation for that. The script trim-workstation-base.sh uninstalls unnecessary packages, and installs necessary packages. Of course, I could have provided a set of tagfiles, but a) the script also works for existing installations, and b) nowadays tagfiles seem to have fallen into oblivion.

On top of that, three SalixOS packages replace stock Slackware packages: kde-baseapps-lite (without Konqueror), KMix and K3B (enhanced). I decided to go for the Salix packages on top of the existing Slackware packages, because the Salix folks care about 100% compatibility with the "mother" distribution and do some very clean work.

And after the install about how much space will the installed system take? I will defiantly try this out tomorrow.

I have Slackware 14 with kde and a full install plus many addon's on 4 different computers the average memory usage on the 4 is about 300 megs at idle. The full install takes about 7.2 gigs of disk space for me. One of these is a 64 bit the other 3 are 32 bit.
