1 Hi all,
3 So, I have a gentoo install that's slowly evolved over the past 3 years
4 or so years. It's now so cluttered with packages, it's becoming ridiculous,
5 especially for a headless server. What I'd like to do is be able to remove
6 all KDE/Gnome/X/gtk/qt/...etc out of the machine and not have it break the
7 machine completely.
9 Any suggestion on how to do go about this? At this stage, I'd like the
10 server to have the basic system build, LAMP, and Postfix.
12 If I start removing packages, then revdep complains about dependencies and
13 ends pulling back the packages I had removed, same thing with world. I
14 globally removed all the X related flags I can think of.
16 Also, in the process of switching to a hardened profile, which is one reason
17 why I wanted to clean up the install.
19 Thanks again,
21 Any help would be appreciated.
