I've got my server hosted at theplanet, and I'm trying to get them to do a minimal install of RHEL5 (64bit). Here's what anaconda-ks.cfg shows:
install url --url http://192.168.0.2/RHES5-x86_64 key --skip lang en_US.UTF-8 . . . selinux --enforcing timezone --utc America/Chicago bootloader --location=mbr --driveorder=sda,sdb # The following is the partition information you requested # Note that any partitions you deleted are not expressed # here so unless you clear all partitions first, this is # not guaranteed to work #clearpart --linux --drives=sda #part /boot --fstype ext3 --onpart sda1 #part / --fstype ext3 --onpart sda2 #part /data --fstype ext3 --onpart sda5 #part swap --onpart sda3 %packages @core
Now, I would guess this would install a minimal number of packages. However, rpm -qa | wc -l gives a total of 614 packages installed. Going through the install.log, I see packages related to sound, dvd rw, bluetooth, printing, XOrg packages, etc. Reading online a bit, I'm seeing that a minimal install should be more like 250-280 packages.
Any thoughts on how to strip this down further?
