SubjectRe: Will 2.6 require Python for any configuration ? (CML2)
let's see you remove perl, python, etc but are going to leave gcc on there
so you can compile kernels there????
if you are really locking a box down like that you will compile the kernel
on another machine and so will not need gcc or python on the box.
