What can I get rid of?


Hi, I'm very new to Linux so this might be a bit dumb.

I'm running a small distro (Peanut Linux) on a P133.

The box has the sole purpose of web and FTP server with PHP and Mysql support, no screen, no keyboard, no other function. I control this box via telnet.

I want to free up as much space as possible on its 1.2 GB hard drive so I can use it to download stuff from the internet with ftp.

Below is what I get from typing rpm -qa. I want to get rid of as much stuff as I can but I'm scared that I could accidentally wipe out something vital to the system.

So, besides the obvious (xitami, mysql, php, telnet and their dependencies) is there anything on this list that I definitely should not uninstall? And is their a good command to use beside rpm -e for each program?

Thankyou

Nick

"Below is what I get from typing rpm -qa. I want to get rid of as much stuff as I can but I'm scared that I could accidentally wipe out something vital to the system."

You can find out what each package is with rpm -qi packagename, for example:
rpm -qi newt

I casually scanned your list and I think that you could consider throwing out these packages if you are not using them:
blackbook
vim-X11
vim-common
vim-minimal

Also you can get an easier to read listing with:

rpm -qa | sort | less

But in general I think that you need most of the packages that you have installed.

If you are only going to be accessing the box through telnet, you don't need KDE or the X libraries. Also, if your box does not have a cd-rw drive, you can remove the cd-r related packages.

And the SDL stuff and the printing stuff (foomatic, cups, ghostscript),
libmikmod2-3.1.10-1
libmng-1.0.3-1
libogg-1.0-1
libpng-1.2.4-1
libvorbis-1.0-1
libungif-4.1.0b1-4
libgtk+1.2-1.2.10-2
libgtkmm1.2-1.2.8-1
libjpeg-6b-1
liblcms-1.08-1
libglib1.2-1.2.10-2
esound-0.2.29-1
fftw-2.1.3-1
dillo-0.7.1.2-1
audiofile-0.2.3-1
libslang1-1.4.5-1
lame-3.93.1-1
libao-0.8.2-1
libart_lgpl-2.3.10-1
glut-3.7-1
gphoto2-2.1.0-1
gsview-4.3-1

All that lot can go. There's probably more but I'm getting bored now. Don't touch glibc. You should probably keep bash and, er linux-2.4.20-1 might be quite important...

Thumbs up

Thanks to all...

In retrospect I guess I took something of a liberty posting that massive list and expecting others to trawl through it for me. So extra thanks

most of that can go - but I'd do it incrementally - easier to diagnose if you get rid of something crucial and have to reinstall.

just dumping the KDE related stuff will free a ton of space.

isn't Maelstrom a GL game?
