ISO images refresh
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:43:12 EDT
Description of problem:
I guess, it would be very helpful if ISO images of distribution will
be updated on scheduled basis.
For example, Fedora Core 1 was released on Nov 5, 2003. Since then a
lot of packages have been updated. What I propose is just do regular
updates of ISO images (eg., once a month or based on quantity and
type of updates).
In my example, motherboard ASUS K8 Deluxe (AMD64, Serial ATA), I
needed to load Fedora Core 1 ISOs, up2date kernel. Original kernel
does not have support for Serial ATA disks, so I have to use IDE hard
drive as installtion point and gain access to Serial ATA after kernel
update. So, if ISO would be fresh I would not need IDE drive.
Fortunately, Fedora Core 1 x86-64 is updated and I did not have such
problem. Everything started to work out of the box!
Also, if ISO images would be updated on regular basis then people
will use up2date for less quantity of packages. This will minimize
load on servers that provide updated packages.
The only problem that I see in this way is additional 'Subrelease
information'. For example, it will be like "Fedora Core 1 February
2004" or "Fedora Core 1 02.2004"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load image
2. Run up2date for hundred packages
3. Think that step #2 is necessary for only 1-10 packages
Everything works without a lot of loading via up2date
not sure why this filed against up2date, refiling against
Not sure that this bug is waiting for some input from me...
I agree to file it against 'distribution' insead of original filing
At this point, the rel-eng effort required for this probably won't be
