fake root approach question on a 2Gb disk


I want to use the fake root approach.
Is a 2Gb partition enough for a base install with X and a full Gnome install ?

For a full Gnome install, I think you are looking at 4.5 GB

So, if you want gnome installed, either find a minimal-install that will install the gui or install to terminal and manually install gnome.

Thanks for the help.

4,5 Gb for this approach or for a single install of Gnome
