I just want to have a server for nfs shares, music shares, ssh
connections, web server, roundcube mail server, ftp server, ...
I agree that now a days, 660Mb of disk space is not a problem (and it is
not really for me, except that I'll have to format my root partition
because /usr/share size really increases).
My question is just a question of principle. Why use 660Mb when less
could be enough ? As I said, Freenas is about 100Mb and it is based on
Debian. I think it could be possible to achieve something like this
(without the drakxtools).
