To download Minstall run the following command under root:

wget -O /opt/minstall.tar.gz --no-check-certificate; mkdir /opt/minstall; tar -C /opt/minstall -f /opt/minstall.tar.gz --strip-components 1 -x -z; ln -s /opt/minstall/libraries/default/ /usr/local/bin/minstall; chmod +x /usr/local/bin/minstall

To remove Minstall run the following command under root:

rm -rf /opt/minstall /opt/minstall.tar.gz /usr/local/bin/minstall


minstall -m install-extra-repositories
minstall -m clean-packages
minstall -m install-terminal-openssh
minstall -m install-extra-packages

minstall -m configure-general-system

No warranty. Limited support available (although I will try my best to make your experience with the script a good one!)
