Hello, I'm new to these forms. I was looking for help with these two desktops. I have checked out some distributions like Slackware, Red Hat, and Icepack. They install and work great, but I recently worked on a "build linux from scratch" thing at http://www.linuxfromscratch.net (I believe that was the site), and I was wondering what the absolute minimal packages needed for gnomeand the absolute minimal for kde desktop set up would be. Do any of you know what the bare minimum is or a place where I can find the bare minimum packages? It would be of great help.
