    Default Install Backtrack without X / Remain in the framebuffer

    Is there a way to install backtrack without X ?

    I like the framebuffer of backtrack, I can do what I want in it. KDE is too heavy for my laptop so I would not install it at all.

    At the same time, I ask you if there is a way to put the "fix-splash" screen on all tty, not only tty1 ?

    I have many other questions but this is good for now, thanx !

    if you don't want X, why load it? stay at the command-line all you want.

    that being said, if you really wanted to remove X/KDE/Flux/ etc, as well as all their libraries and dependencies... then yes there is certainly a way. this isn't windows, after all.

    removing it is easy (#man apt) but doing right will take a full-blown project.

    good luck with that...(just don't expect a lot of assistance from these boards, you're kinda on your own with this.)
