there is the philosophy: put only things in the aircraft you really need. This should improve
reliability and reduce vulnerability. I have to argue why I need a library/package and I'm
having problems to argue why I need libX11 etc. The few megabytes are not my problem my problem
it's the environment I'm working.

Is it possible to get rpm not to depend on a full GUI erlang install?
This is likely what pulls in most of the X11* related stuff. This is
standard/possible on debian etc but I don't know how the split is done
for redhat-alike distros.

Alternatively, if you're in the Aviation industry consider rolling
your own release with this erlang  and
the spidermonkey from .
