This is how I trimmed an AC100.


download package selections You can set packages by:

dpkg --set-selections < ac100selections.txt


killall plymouthd
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
exit 0

The modem

PPP does not work. CDC does work.

I have made a minicom-runscript script to set up internet using the modem: ac100modem

just apt-get install minicom, configure as "minicom -s". After that you can run ac100modem as root to get internet access.

You can then type Control-A Q to terminate minicom while staying online.

This is a very light-weight way of managing the network. You can even kill wpa_supplicant. And dhclient (I get a 24 hour lease).
