Re: [opensuse-factory] leap42 - minimum server pattern has become too minimum
Stephan Kulow composed on 2015-10-23 12:54 (UTC+0200):

Mind you: the patter is called "Minimum Server Pattern". Minimum sort-
of implies that bloat should be left out.

YaST = bloat ? That's a new one to me. Oh well.

Inside a container, yes, absolutely! It just does not belong there.

We even got bug reports about the minimal pattern requiring a kernel

Seriously, >1? :-) I filed one long long ago (11.4) that maybe meets the
installation of 0 kernels is possible

Maybe what's needed is a recharacterization, instead of "minimal", use
"minimalist", implying a less strict word usage, and/or adding another
selection that is truly/purely/strictly/absolutely minimal, with a
description making it abundantly clear that any subtractions would fatally
break it. Or maybe not the latter. To me, "server" means networking, which
otherwise wouldn't be necessary in a strictly minimal installation. Nano, or
something smaller if smaller exists in FOSS (in DOS I have TEDIT.COM, 3096
bytes), would be the only editor. Even zypper wouldn't stricly be necessary,
because it's a wrapper, not essential, as is rpm. Butwait - is rpm even
essential? Won't cpio, mv and cp suffice? Or a busybox?
