I'm planning to install a minimal version of fedora and then manually (perhaps using apt to handle dependencies) remove some packages that I don't need. The key here is the disk usage.
I want my install to be as small as:
kernel glibc basic file utilities (ls, cat) rpm + apt
Of course I would need all rpms that are dependent on these + anything required for fedora to work.
My question is: has anyone tried it? How low can you go in terms of disk space used?
I don't know how low you can go, but I have managed a minimal install a lot less then the default povided by anaconda package selection, by creating a kickstart file that explicitely removes packages from installation ..
One day I will set some time aside and arrive at the bare-minimimum kickstart file..
