Re: Debian-Lite : The Project

To get a feel for this, I made up what seemed to be a comfortable working
Debian and went through the excercise of creating it from a minimum set of
packages.  The working Debian was just on 40 Mb and it needed only  8 Mb
of packages to produce this, as most files came from base1_3.tgz.

In other words the space required in round figures on a cdrom is 12 Mb for
the disk-i386 set plus 8Mb for my selection of packages, or 20 Mb.  So
with 98 Mb available the is 78 Mb free to add other things. 

I created a new tree which was a partial copy of bo, being just the
selected packages and I used the bo Packages.gz file as is.  dpkg was
quite happy with this.  The only trick is to unselect all except the
required packages before using dpkg --set-selections.

Here is the output of my  dpkg --get-selections:-
