Creating a more functional CLI-only Remix

(1/1)

jwesleycooper:
Hey all, basically what I'd like to do is create a CLI-only remix, based off of CorePlus, but with all the GUI-stuff stripped out and either replaced with shell scripts that can be ran through midnight commander, or just plain omitted.  I also plan on compiling some additional extensions of my own, such as the Offline NT Password & Registry Editor, as well as some scripts that'd make it easier for me to do tech support with this image.  Eventually, I hope to have completed a small "server" VirtualBox VM, along with a "client" iso, which my customers can boot from and will automatically connect to the server.

Unfortunately, the wiki entry on remastering is a little vague; any suggestions on how I might strip all the GUI component and locale extensions from the CorePlus image?  Thanks!  :)

Core is command line only, nothing to strip.
You don't get GUI unless you install it.

jwesleycooper:
So I should just start with the core image, and add to it all the wireless drivers, firmware, and cli-utils then?

That's right.
