The Absolute (non-empty) minimum are 6 packages (glibc, glibc-common,
tzdata, basesystem, filesystem, setup). The next step are 56 packages[1]
which are needing 71 MiB (installed languages: C,de,en,es,fr); an oldish
deptree of them is available at


Then, adding the kernel + its deps, you will end in 63 packages which
are taking 104 MiB. There is a potential to reduce this numbers by
omitting all non-C languages, but rpm has a bug[2] which prevents this.

Numbers are valid for Fedora Core 1 + current updates.
