I am looking for a scaled down version of Linux/Unix
I am looking for the most scaled down distribution of Linux/Unix that I can install on an old computer. Features listed below.
- Minimal GUI: Preferably a command line environment where all image files are handled by something similar to Delphi.
- Dependencies: I would like the OS/dist. to be able to handle .txt files and some image files from the get go.
- Preferably some compatibility with modern systems: For example, the possibility to use Synaptic, or equivalent, to download Latex packages and compile from the command line/terminal without errors.
- Minimal amount of structure when installed: The difference between this question and Unix without a GUI for old machine is that I don't need the distribution to be usable "out of the box".
What I am looking for is the least squares projection of all the properties above.
