Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439319
FutureFeature: Max out DVD ISO
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:13:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora 8 DVD ISO had fewer development libraries and fonts that are needed than
Fedora Core 5. It is important to have as much as possible on the DVD ISO so
that installs on computers not attached to any networks can still be used to
configure/make/install other SW packages. In addition, the F8 DVD ISO size was
small and would have still allowed significantly more packages. Why not max out
the DVD ISO size?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 8 X11, fonts, *-devel-*.rpm
F8 DVD ISO is what it is. Hopefully F9 and onwards will max out the DVD ISO
size with more devel libs, headers, etc.
A DVD ISO distro size that maxes out a DVD.
This is a small percentage of DVD ISO usage since most installs will be followed
by yum updates and installs, etc. Isolated computers would benefit by full
featured distro ISOs. Perhaps a remote Revisor service to custom build a DVD
ISO would be beneficial.
Thank you for your consideration.
Why in the world is this x11 bug?
The Fedora 9 DVDs are bursting at the seam, we can't add any more to them.

Sorry about that, but bugzilla makes you pick something otherwise the submission
fails. In addition, the "component" list is huge and without categories. After
a few minutes of looking around, I picked something related to some of the
problems (lack of devel libs, headers, fonts, etc., for X11).
