You completely miss my point, but lately you've been real good at that. Can the system boot without PHP, Apache, PostgreSQL, Mysql and/or Pine? Can the root user log in without PHP, Apache, PostgreSQL, Mysql and/or Pine? Can any user log in without PHP, Apache, PostgreSQL, Mysql and/or Pine? Note, I'm not even including an MTA here. I said BASIC OPERATION. If a package is not critical as I just outlined, it shouldn't matter who installed it. After the last go around with you Lamar, this will be my last response to you on this.
