Is gnome-core *really* the gnome minimal install?
According to documentations, gnome-core package is considered to be the very
minimal gnome installation in Debian. But in my personal experience it is not
so. Just after installing Debian, I installed gnome-core just to have the
minimal gnome installation. Then I noticed that totem, the video player, was
also installed even though I hadn't. Since I use mplayer, I did `aptitude
purge totem' and was surprised to see that gnome-core depended on totem, so
that removing totem would also remove gnome-core. I did so, and now gnome
desktop environment, even without gnome-core package, seems to work well. So I
ask to myself what gnome minimal install should really be. I have Sid.
Thanks for any help,
