What is small? This is the question and I have been pondering it for
awhile. I just tried using the Linuxconf vserver module to build my base
vserver and was not happy with either the minimal or full install. It
probably was I wanted some 'optional' packages that I consider necssary
and didn't automagically get them. (I still have more experimenting to
I'm on a RPM list and have got some suggestions as to how to figure out
what packages require what other packages so I cam build a list and then
only install those I want and need.
For now I've made my base vserver from the main server and I'll start
slicing and dicing out the fluff. You might try the same.
