I am trying to trim down hard drive space requirements of ubuntu; for that reason, I am trying to get a bare minimum install of ubuntu
I tried (using a preseeding file) install the target as ubuntu-minimal, but it ran into 1.1GB (14.10) I tried ubuntu-standard, which is around 917MB
All I want it is , grub2, kernel, ssh and a shell + login. Any dependency of these packages are all right. But how can I get this bare minimal install?
I tried ubuntu-core-remix. But, there is no installer and I have no idea to get the list of packages that distro has.
I am from redhat/fedora world. First time trying out ubuntu.
What do you suggest? go through apt-get, aptitude ..etc documentation? While I am at that, can someone suggest something that may take a little less time?
