FutureFeature: Single CD Install
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:00:59 EDT
I would like to suggest a feature for Fedora Core that I think will be of
benefit to a lot of people.
When downloading the ISOs it is difficult to know how many to download. With
only selecting a minimal set of componants to install I still had to use four of
the CD's. With the DVD download this obviously isn't an issue since everything
is on the same disc.
So I think it would be a good idea to also provide a "base" iso of just one CD
that contains enough to install the system with perhaps the X server, GNOME and
Firefox. That way, those of us who have an internet connection available could
download and install just the "base.iso" and then use YUM as usual to install
extra packages without having to worry about how many ISOs one has to download.
I also believe this would help relieve some bandwidth on the ISO servers.
Regards, Jason Robinson.
I just want to add that I don't think that YUM repositories would suffer since
we use YUM even though packages are available on the CDs.
