I'd like to install a command-line only version of Ubuntu 12.04, but I do not have clear which installation media I should use: I understood that the classical "Ubuntu Desktop" does not contain the CL option, but then I found different answers:
1) I should use the Ubuntu Server version (Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS installation mode "Install a command-line system" missing?)
2) No wait, the
Server Install CD provides a simple command line system, but it is not the same as "install a command-line system"
and therefore I should use the "Alternate CD" version (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/LowMemorySystems)
3) No, no, wait, the Ubuntu alternate installer still installs the
ubuntu-desktop package (What are the differences between Desktop, Server, and Alternate Installs?)
So which version do I need for a command-line system? Server or Alternate?
Thanks for the help!
