Installing Unubtu

4 posts in this topic

Is it possible to install the Unubtu (8.0.4) without X11 and if so, how? I'm hoping it can be done without some nutty bass-ackwards hack.

Try the server edition(?)

The server edition is the way to go if you're running on real hardware. Ubuntu JeOS (Juice) is intended for VMWare installations and has a cut down kernel with only support for the bare minimum drivers that VMWare uses.

The beauty of '.deb' systems is that the package management system is extremely robust, so you could start with desktop (or alternate) and remove the xlibs packages. (Hint you can see what packages are installed with 'dpkg --list'.)

Cheers,

Munge.
