Re: Package Selection for Debian Live
Is it posible to have a minimum size image with a WM that can stay
below 125MB? This would be a great size for USB versions and versions
running under Qemu or VMWare. Just a thought.

at the moment, we have two types of Live CD images:
* the small one which contains only packages of standard priority,
* and three larger ones, each of which contains one of the common
desktop-environments on it (gnome, kde, xfce).
Now, we would like to create a decent package selection which reflects,
as well as possible, the users' desires. There should be one package
selection for a 700MB CD-ROM, and one for a 4.5GB DVD-ROM. With the
current squashfs compression, the actual filesystem size is about 3
times bigger than the packed one. This means that there can be quite a
few packages on it :) I'm open for your suggestions...
