    [ Experiment ] Stripping Down KNOPPIX 7.4.2 DVD to Mimic KNOPPIX 7.2.0 CD

    Hi, folks:

    A list of packages in 7.4.2 DVD which may be able to be purged in order to mimic 7.2.0 CD is included in the attached tar ball. They are arranged based on their reversed dependency, the results of ' apt-cache -i rdepends ', relative to the ones at the adjacent level above; the packages on Level 1 don't have any packages which depend on them. At the same level, packages don't reply on each other, unless they are joined by the ampersand signs and are in dependency cycle.

    So far, after purging these packages with ' dpkg --purge --force-all ' when the persistent overly was in place, the mimic is still bootable and functional; the cheatcode of knoppix64 hasn't been tested. There is also no broken package listed in apt-get/aptitude. The total number and installed size, shown by dpkg, are 1547 and about 3GB (w/o compressed).

    As I'm new to Linux and Knoppix, this purge list probably contains some critical packages (related to 64bit stuff, maybe?) and some surplus. If you spot them, shear them, please!


    PS: A list of packages from 7.4.2 DVD which are in dependency cycle is also attached; the base system, the packages tagged with important and required and the ones which they depend on, were excluded when the list was built. Both lists in the tar ball are plain text files, not scripts.
