Why on earth does the minimal install insist on installing 'xdm' ??
This seems to be new, maybe introduced with an update, I dunno.

Is this a text-only, headless or a GUI resulting 'minimal install'?
("Context is everything"!)

There is no context as such - it is what you get when you choose
the "Minimal Install" (or what ever it is called) pattern.
I remove a few unrelated things (grub, firewall, ntfs, wireless stuff),
and add man and man-pages.

If there is no GUI/X-server then I can see that its not necessary.

In text-_only_ mode, there is no GUI :-)

What is the dependency that necessitates XDM?
(Sorry, I'm not on 13.1 I can test that.)

Looks like it is "yast2-install-wf".
