Re: Knoppix 5.1 Mini-Announcement

May I suggest that you keep a list of the packages that you purge from
the DVD to make the CD, this time?  Then (hopefully) it will make the
task that much easier when you're working or 5.0.3 (or 6.0) as you'll
have most of the choosing done already.

Either that or do a dpkg-query on the DVD and the CD and diff the outputs.

Because it'even s more complicated to (re-)configure added software on
each release instead of purging software. :-/

I will try to upgrade the 5.0.1 CD version with new packages first
during the next days, and if this makes everything worse, try he other
way by stripping down the now-ready DVD version.
