Thumbs up TSquaredFs Minimal Slackware

I have spent the past couple of days setting up a partition based on this thread. I have added this blog entry to document what I wanted to do with the partition & how I had to modify the package list to do it. Maybe it will be helpful to someone.

As the doors on the "Heart of Gold" would say "Glad to be of service." As I log off with a self satisfied sigh.

Does anyone have the list of packages needed to run X for slackware 13?

I followed the instructions on this website for a minimal slackware 13 install (the instructions for a minimal slackware install on the first page of this thread didn't work for 13);

This worked, less one or two files which were easy to fix . Though I tried the list of packages in an earlier post on this thread on page 1 for X and all I managed to do is install an X server that locked up with no display x.x .

Very nice post!

This is of great interest to me, so it is interesting to see the different attempts.

I notice you have your own definition of minimal's a good thing no one is wasting time arguing over a definition you already provided, and complaining it is not something else :P

Regarding the minimal X install, I wonder about some of the packages, eg libXinerama, are they really necessary? I have quite a different list for a minimal X, and have not had so much time to test. In another thread, someone mentioned X does not actually need any X libraries. Is this correct? If so, what are the consequences of applications, not even xterm would run?

Excellent post though
