slackware iso -- what to leave out?
 
Hey all:

I'm having fun with Slackware, and thought that I'd play with current. So I downloaded the slackware-current tree, and followed the instructions to burn an iso.

I was wondering what other people "leave out" to fit what they need onto a cd. Right now I'm excluding:

bootdisks
extra
pasture
patches
rootdisks
source
testing
zipslack
slackware/kdei
slackware/e

Does anyone else leave out emacs? I never use it, so I figure why install it. Also, I never use tetex, and that also take up a huge chunk...anyone leave it out?

Get a pre-made ISO... every package can be burnt on a CD... so might as well :)

Not every package is included on the pre-made ISO's. For instance, I don't use Peter's Slackware 9.0 ISO because he includes things like gnome and kde but not the kernel source. I also like to use some of the /extra packages so I'll put some of them on the cd.
