Minimal LFS package selection, strip command, and more
1.) Hello I am on a Slackware 14.0 host, and I want to create a very tiny lfs-based distro. I want to figure out which development tools aren't needed to be built for the distro to work. What are the ones that are needed?

2.) And then which strip command should I use to strip unneeded things?

3.) I also would like it to be a frugally-installed distro, not a standard install. How do I do this?

Any help would be appreciated.

If you want a very tiny system that runs frugally and you are already aware how a standard Linux system is built you possibly may rather want to have a look at the Slitaz Scratchbook. Note that the chapters about the Xwindow System, Xorg and GTK are optional, if you don't need them.

LFS already is small by standards. You have to install the LFS listed tools at least to get a complete working system. After install you CAN remove packages like GCC and such compiler specific packages without killing functionality, but as always check the dependency lists to make sure NOTHING is removed that is needed by the system.
