Minimal vs Full install in Peppermint 10
« on: May 24, 2019, 01:22:28 am »
I'm going to install Peppermint on a Vultr VPS, and need some tools to be installed by default, but not audio, video drivers and codecs etc.

What is the difference between the normal install and the so-called minimal installation, in particular, what is not included in the minimal selection?

Currently there's no difference between a normal and minimal install, if I were you if you don't need a GUI at all, just install Ubuntu Server edition .. if you striped all the GUI stuff away from Peppermint, that's pretty much what you'd end up with anyway.

Then just install something like webmin/virtualmin as a front end for managing your VPS

If on the other hand you DO want a GUI desktop, then I guess Peppermint would be ideal .. lot's of configuration options, but very little by way of "user software" to get rid of.
