The initial iso file size is quite big for my purposes (booting a live system via PXE) and I'd like to make it as small as possible.
Ideally I'd like to reach the size of a slitaz distro but I'd be happy with 80MB.
I only need X, no fancy window manager, with just 1 GUI app: rdesktop.
I'd like to trim everything out.
Does anyone have a list of sysrescd packages I can "safely" emerge -C without breaking the system?
I suppose I can remove Xfce and still launch X so I can have rdesktop. Same with gnome packages.
I checked equery list * and took a look at rdesktop's ebuild.
It's dependencies seem to be:
Would it be simpler and cleaner for me to just run:
from within chroot and then 'emerge rdesktop' so it pulls back in whatever it needs?
Post questions about how to make a customized SystemRescueCd, and if you have problems to install new packages. Please read the handbook first.
