I'm in the process of redeploying automatically my firewall machine,
using Mageia. For that I'd like to have a very minimal install.

However, I'm ending up with 580 packages, among them a lot of X11
content, whereas I want a text base install only.

If I try to remove some of them, I end up having to remove basesystem
which isn't an option.

So why is libdrakx-kbd-mouse mandatory e.g. in basesystem ?
Another question is I could urpme lib64xrandr2 (and erase as a
consequence 26 packages, none of them being in my list). 
Why did they came on my install first ??

Is there a way to have the smallest working text base install 
possible ?

Here is my package list:
	'default_packages' => [

I'm working at the moment with Mageia 2 but could try with cauldron if
