Bare debian

I love Linux – usually for being quite slim. But on the other hand, using a really minimalist install on debian 9, I need to add a few packages to get around.

  • openssh-server – provides me ssh access
  • net-tools – contains netstat
  • ca-certificates – without that package I have to download without certificate checks
  • apt-transport-https – allowing repositories like mariadb
  • open-vm-tools – I’m usually running things on a VMware

Anything else is usually pulled in by dependencies of the actual packages needed.
