Hello all... I am somewhat competent in linux. I used to use Slackware years ago, and I have run Fedora, Mandrake/Mandriva, Kubuntu, and a few others... I am not quite at the point where I want to build a linux from scratch system (although I did check out and it would be a fun project)... I just don't think I'm ready to compile everything from the ground up quite yet...
What I am looking for is a distro that isn't so tied into a graphical desktop. I would like to have a good starting point (some or most hardware working after install, and all the tools to build software). And from there, I am looking to compile my own X, KDE, and all the other applications I'll want. The problem I have is that most distros have a desktop by default and just choosing not to install it doesn't seem to remove it altogether so it has been hard for me to get a clean starting point. Any recommendations?
