RE: Minimal X-Windows Setup

I am using apt-get...so this does make total sense that all the depends
are being sucked down via aptitude.

Thanks...I have a little more to look at now which helps a ton.

Hi Stephen,
'x-window-system-core' < 'x-window-system', so install the former.
but it maybe the dpkg front-end that you are using that is adding
'suggests'. aptitude normally adds this, so you may see more things
being downloaded. So checkout the aptitude options to turn this off and
it will install less things.
ps. what commnd are you using to install this, if this is not the case?
