yes, but I guess as with most distros there are weird
dependancies across the packages .. like for example
that basesystem needs cpio and cpio won't do without
setserial :) or like fileutils require automount and
automount will drag in eject ... well you get the idea
In general it would be a great thing if folks really
good with a distro (or distributors) could do some
kind of linux-vserver dependancy graph, which would
allow to fix or ignore certain dependancies for vserver
guests (saving a lot of space and trouble) without
causing the tiniest update to drag in the 'missing'
350MB you carefully avoided in the first place ...
