Hello, I've been searching the forum for this kind of information, but I couldn't find anything... sorry if this has been asked before (and please give me a link to the topic, so I can learn
What I basically need is information about the packages that Slackware 9.0 installs, 'cause reading the docs in /usr/doc doesn't give me enough hints as to guess what the program is for. What I'm trying to accomplish is to install ONLY what I need in my system without making and LFS system. I want to use Slackware and it's pkgtool. So, as you can see, my problem is finding the necessary information as to know whether I can remove the package or not. I went to the expert mode in the installation, but I couldn't get the "you need this to use foo utility". I don't want to install everything, not only for space reasons, but because I want to know what I have in my system and what it is used for. (I know an LFS system would be good, but I don't have a really powerful machine, so compiling would take too many hours...)
If someone has a link to get this kind of info, it would be appreciated.
Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker as you surely guessed.
