I'm about to start building my Myth backend and I can't seem to find
anything that discusses the pros and cons of installing the OS (Fedora 15)
as console only or GUI, ie install KDE as well.
So, other than a bit of disk space, is there any reason why I shouldn't
install KDE when I set it up ?
Is there any great disadvantage to running the server in init level 5 (ie
KDE, xorg, etc) running in the background, but not being logged in, versus
init level 3 ? (Or whatever they call these things these days..., ie F15
FWIW, my backend hardware will sit on a server rack in the utility room. I
might drag a display and keyboard down there once in a while to troubleshoot
and/or do maintenance, but mostly I'd ssh in and probably use a remote
desktop app to work on it.
FWIW, I'm OK doing things via the CLI, but sometimes its really nice to have
I look forward to your input.
