You know, minimal templates come with a health warning for a reason.
They expect, (and often require) a level of understanding and
The Minimal TemplateVMs are intended only for advanced users. If
you encounter problems with the Minimal TemplateVMs, we recommend
that you use their standard TemplateVM counterparts instead.
If something works with a standard TemplateVM but not the minimal
version, this is most likely due to user error (e.g., a missing
package or misconfiguration) rather than a bug. In such cases, please
do not file a bug report. Instead, please see Help, Support, Mailing
Lists, and Forum for the appropriate place to ask for help. Once
you have learned how to solve your problem, please contribute what
you learned to the documentation.
Make sure that everything works in a standard template, and then look to
see what relevant packages are installed there compared to what you have,
and then check back here.
