Hello,

is there any way to do minimal installation of aptosid like debootstrap, so that I only have a minimal number of packages installed.

Or is it easier to do netinstall for sid.

Thanks

No, kde-lite or xfce is as minimal as it gets in regards to aptosid releases; due to the nature of Debian sid/unstable, we also can't support netinstall options.

a kde lite install with the printer stuff and locales and unecessary manual languages purged is not much over 1.5G. very quick and easy to do (2minute install with a 4ghz 4core cpu, 12 minutes with a 1ghz single core cpu).

this means a useful operating system fits easily on a 4G sd card, even with a few extra media players and browsers.

all the best, ike.

The Lite versions are quite small, in fact very small if we see that the year is 2011AD
and take a look at the lowest-end hardware available even 3-5 years back.
Also very simple,straight and easy to install.

My EeePC 4G/701 aptosid Xfce installation from 2009 is only about 3GiB. Probably if I could remember to run apt-get clean it would go down further.
