Slackware - minimal package list/installation for web browser only?


Hi all,
I want to install Slackware 14.2 with minimal package list that allows run web browser (eg. firefox) only.
Before I start, I want to ask if maybe anyone here did this excercise before (and could share package list)?

There are a lot of minimal installs out there, but I don't know any that are specific for a web browser. You'll probably just need to play with it until you find what works best for you. Check out these two threads as a way to start (on the first thread, specifically look at nobodino's posts towards the end of the thread).

You could just install the A and N set and use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynx_(web_browser) or https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/network/elinks/

It should probably also be mentioned that if you want to use multimedia playback in Firefox, there's a good chance you'll need some 3rd-party programs from SBo (like ffmpeg and/or h264). This will likely require additional dependencies in the d/ and l/ series to be able to compile and run those programs.

I just tried nobodino's bare system. It works but the list is missing lilo.
Next step is to add network and X11.

@bassmadrigal - that is exactly what I want to avoid
@enine - thanks for hint.

[UPDATE 20200401]
Note: the heavy lift has been done by: deNiro and nobodino.

Here is my attempt on Slackware 14.2.
List contains:
Code:
- lilo
- network
- openssh
- X11
- elvis(vi)
- upgrade/install packages via slackpkg
- firefox
At the first startup, following must be executed (once):

Code:
sed -i '/USE_DHCP\[0\]/s/".*"/"yes"/' /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart
echo "export LC_ALL=C" >> /etc/profile
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /usr/lib64/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache
