    I built a system up from the minimal image a little while ago. 1.2GB, and that's Gnome and 64-bit. 32-bit would probably be at least 10% smaller.

    Re: Minimum Ubuntu partition install with X GUI

    I have ubuntu on my other computer using the normal download of ubuntu 9.04 I am working on a project here is what it is.

    I am working with a another guy on Ubuntu music production system for a friend of mine and we decided to use the Ubuntu minimal install and he is doing the install remotely once I get setup on my end.

    What i would like to know is what does this install or not install compared to the regular install CD I have never used this before so I am wanting to know more about it? there is not much on the minimal install page except the downloads, or am I missing a link or something?

    I do want a X GUI system we decided to go with the mini since all the Ubuntu install iso's have pulseaudio installed and this will not be a compatible sound architecture for the jack sound server etc.

    thanks

    The minimal CD is exactly that, it is command line only.

    If you want a full install you can simply install ubuntu-desktop

    Code:
    apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    Otherwise you install only what you want. If you want a lighter weight install, install gnome for example.

    Re: Minimum Ubuntu partition install?

    Ok that helps, I do know that we will need the ubuntu desktop install. Now will that install the desktop like in the regular iso download or do I need to add much more? If it wasn't for the pulse audio issue we would just install the regular Ubuntu 8.04 iso image. I never done this before and there is not much of a howto on this. well I will be watching mostly. excpet I will be installing the just the base minimal.

    Is there a howto on the HD partitioning for the ubuntu minimal I will get a howto from the my project team member but I would like to see this as a learning experience for myself.

    yes, ubuntu-desktop is the same as the desktop iso, and it will install pulse audio.

    If all you want is to remove pulse audio, I suggest you install the desktop iso and remove the pulse audio package.

    Have you considered Ubuntu Studio? It is Ubuntu with Jack and lots of other music apps pre installed.

    Anyway, since you are using 8.04, you don't need to worry about PulseAudio. It is installed by default in 9.10, but not 8.04 (which uses alsa instead).

    May I ask, what would be the minimum package commands that I would require for using only OpenOffice, Firefox, Gedit and browsing files in Knome?

    I am sorry to ask what is probably a very basic question, but I do not recognise the names of some of the other packages that have been included.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
