The Problem is that you are using packages from OI-Userland to define
the installed packges.
You will need to use packages inside your depotd inside the xml tags.
I do not beleive that you have a package called minimal_install in your
repo. That package is from OI-Userland.
My Choice would also fall to 2 or 3. I am tending more to 3 if we do not

Hope this helps

Could you use an earlier version of Rust as bootstrap for the current rust?
There should be a guide for rust bootstraping around on the internet.

After uninstall you can remove sfe again.

Small fact about these cases in Java.
It is actually quite common for Javabindings to distribute their shared

bindings do so.
So if you leave them out the jar would just unpack them again and maybe
