    I was browsing through my Manage screen in Cydia and saw a lot of programs which seem to be for developers. I know with Installer, you needed BSD Subsystem to install many apps, so I was afraid to just uninstall things at random. Does anyone know which packages can be removed without impending function?

    What must I absolutely have installed cause I'm not a developer and don't need a bunch of things like linux text editors (nano) filling my manage screen.

    I'm looking to remove some of the items from the Manage Screen too. Does anybody know what I can take off?

    If something is installed, it's installed for a good reason. Don't touch it, at the bare minimum it's not taking up any significant amount of space and it's not otherwise doing anything harmful.

    BSD Subsystem is a system of necessary tools

    Cydia has its own Subsystem so there is no need for BSD thats why you install Fake BSD

    All those files are the Subsystem

    nah I disagree I think Saurik got high one day and decided to include all those packages just so he could say he wrote a lot of programs and make himself seem important. I would recommend deleting them all since they are all useless (kinda like the System32 folder), afterall if Saudik didn't want us messing with email he'd make them protected! Also, think of all the hentai u could put in it's place!

    it's especially useful on Vista since it speeds up your system. It increased my fps by 25 in CoD4
