Subject description: a minimal install complete with sound
 

https://l3net.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/lightweight-debian-lxde-desktop-from-scratch/

Installing sound :
alsa : sudo apt-get install libasound2 alsa-utils alsa-oss alsa-tools-gui
or
pulseaudio :
For pulseaudio you also need to add your current user to pulse and pulse-access groups:
$ sudo apt-get install pulseaudio paprefs pulseaudio-module-jack \
pavucontrol paman alsa-tools-gui
$ sudo usermod -a -G pulse,pulse-access `whoami`

Reboot the computer for the sound system to kick in.

Note :
This is for Dog users who are familiar with apt and the Debian way of doing things.

UPDATE :
I have made Debian + fvwm-crystal (120MB of archive) from Debian Buster (testing).
Having used Debian cd, and kept to a minimal install (no desktop environment), i switched to su to apt install xorg then fvwm-crystal.
The result is very light on system, 60 MB memory usage idle (sudo free).

Default installed apps of note are xterm and Audacious. I installed firefox-esr gparted firejail.
Installing from cd or from mklive-stretch took about the same time to install. But you have a more complete installation with mklive-stretch, more Puppy-like than Debian-like.

But this is only an experiment with my old Toshiba laptop, using its hard drive.

As an experiment, you can do something similar : xorg + lxde (420MB of archive). xorg+task-lxde-desktop (1000+MB of archive) A complete Debian lxde.
