for gpm and modutils I see, and agree, for man I have
to object ... why should this be useless in a vserver?
anyway I think vserver will need some kind of adapted
package set (or debs) for a useful minimal set, because
there are other 'basic' requirements and dependancies
than on a physical system:
e.g. not needed but usually depended on:
- hardware detection (pci/kuzdu/...)
- device files (/dev/*)
- kernel & kernel headers
- modules & modutils
- bootloader, hdpartition, fscreation ...
> My almost freshly-created debian vserver contains 91 package, including mc and ssh and maybe something else. So the actual minimal set is even smaller. Although debian's packaging system is far more advanced than rh's, I don't really think that rh requires bigger number of packages. I may post my minimal set in debian if someone needs it.
