Well, your explanation proves my point. You have no clue about what you are asking:

Quote:
The configurations I was referring to were the options the can be installed/not installed or turned on/off

ELF GNOME KDE GTK
x11 lxde Scheme Bourne
ext3 ext4 xfs ReiserFS

And how those choices affected the performance of Slackware it's self
Still feels like you have an assignment or grading at school and try to find answers to questions that make no sense. It's like you copy/pasted some text at random. And none of it contributes to "the performance of Slackware it's self" - apart from completely killing it as volkerdi so eloquently stated.

5) Configuration with the fastest performance (gaming).
1) there is a minimal install, just try it out
2) you can turn off as many services as there are available, a system that is not doing anything has a very low memory food print, the question is, how useful is it
3,4) you can start/stop network and see if this has any impact,
5) this is a hardware question

here you are mixing up thigs, the one is comparing desktop environments, the other is file systems, the 3rd is what I do not understand (ELF, Scheme Bourne)
x11 is used by all desktops, at the moment on a Slackware installation, but you can start x11 without desktop, it will just not be very functional.


Suggestion: make it clear to your self what your questions are, and than process one at a time.

Well I'm going to answer you:

These benchmarks do not exist because no-one has done them.

They would be pretty pointless too since they would vary so much based on the hardware used...

I think Alien Bob is right, this is a school assignment and the point is not to have useful benchmarks so much as it is to get the op to learn how to get that information.

Hint: GNOME and LXDE are not among the options offered.

I'm actually pretty sure he's trolling.

I put him on ignore almost immediately, but I'll be reading his posts and giving him a chance as I see fit.

He was doing this on an almost daily basis, and also copying text from message boards he reads. It was this very little substance I stopped ever bothering reading what he has to say.

Actually publications benchmarking anything like this of desktop systems is mostly a pointless exercise.

To the OP bteddy1

There are no benchmarks for what you are asking.

The Slackware Way™ is always full install.

Of course there are systems installed as you asking about but those are probably systems for experimenting, pointless to benchmark.


The Slackware Way™ is also to have some idea what you're talking about before asking.
ELF GNOME KDE GTK
x11 lxde Scheme Bourne
ext3 ext4 xfs ReiserFS
instead of just throwing out a bunch of random terms.

As in which is better media player, vlc or mpv? Which is a better database mysql or mariadb?

I don't think there will be any noticeable difference between a "minimal" install of Slack, compared to a full install of Slack.

Your best bet at a benchmark, is comparing Slackware to other distributions on the same hardware. Do a full install of Slackware, benchmark it, then do a full install of any other Linux distro.
There really won't be any difference between a Slackware install that has less packages than a minimal slackware install.

I truly don't get it why so many people assume that just because a thing is installed that it somehow also uses up running resources just by being there.

They've been traumatized by Windows Registry!
