Clean up Debian Wheezy Ubuntu Server

The Debian 7 Wheezy basic Install is pretty clean.

But still some package can be removed after installation.

Same in Ubuntu many packages can be removed.

First remove the ispell and dictionary

dpkg --purge dictionaries-common iamerican ibritish ienglish-common ispell wamerican

Then remove DHCP client if using static IP:

dpkg --purge isc-dhcp-client isc-dhcp-common

And few other package as option:

dpkg --purge laptop-detect
dpkg --purge xauth

ACPI can be remove if you like:

dpkg --purge acpi acpi-support-base acpid

dpkg --purge wireless-tools wpasupplicant
dpkg --purge nano
dpkg --purge ntfs-3g
dpkg --purge ppp pppconfig pppoeconf
