What packages do I have to remove to install Slackware without any desktop ?
I'm planning to install GNOME(Url:gnomeslackbuild.org) on Slackware and I'm
wondering about which "Software Series" do I have to unselect ?
Software Series Series Contents A The base system. Contains enough software to get up and running and have a text editor and basic communication program. AP Various applications that do not require the X Window System. D Program development tools. Compilers, debuggers, interpreters, and man pages are all here. E GNU Emacs. F FAQs, HOWTOs, and other miscellaneous documentation. K The source code for the Linux kernel. KDE The K Desktop Environment. An X environment which shares a lot of look-and-feel features with MacOS and Windows. The Qt library, which KDE requires, is also in this series. KDEI Internationalization packages for the KDE desktop. L Libraries. Dynamically linked libraries required by many other programs. N Networking programs. Daemons, mail programs, telnet, news readers, and so on. T teTeX document formatting system. TCL The Tool Command Language. Tk, TclX, and TkDesk. X The base X Window System. XAP X Applications that are not part of a major desktop environment (for example, Ghostscript and Netscape). Y BSD Console games
packages to install GNOME.
A full install is always recommended when it comes to Slackware, but for your intents and purposes you can leave out /KDE and /KDEI.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
Did you want to keep the entire system rather lean, or did you want to keep everything but DEs? There are several different things you may want to look at:
X and XAP will have other window managers and applications
KDE and KDEI have the KDE4 package sets
If you want a list of "required" packages just let me know.
