F11 ppc Beta ISO bigger than a medium
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:18:11 EDT
Description of problem:
our F11 ppc Beta DVD ISO is bigger than a medium
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F11 Beta ppc
tried with Verbatim DVD-R and DVD+R (that's all the media choices I have at this desk)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download Fedora-11-Beta-i386-DVD.iso
2. sha256sum -c Fedora-11-Beta-i386-CHECKSUM
3. try to burn ISO
gnome's built-in burning application, brasero and k3b all complain that the ISO is bigger than the medium.
tried burning a medium in k3b with 'overburn' on but the burn failed.
we should distribute ISO images that fit on a medium
1) not 100% sure 'distribution' is the right component, please re-assign if I chose badly.
2) it would be nice if this was a blocker bug for F11 release.
3) I have not tried i386 and x86_64 ISOs, those get installed via network. This bug was discovered when trying to make a medium for a test install on a PlayStation3
Added to blocker.

This wasn't actually a dupe of 492625. The DVD package set just grew too big to fit on a DVD anymore and something had to be culled. I've dropped the java development group and that seems to have saved enough space.
Fedora-11-Preview-ppc-DVD.iso is 4,7GiB (ls -l) / 5,0 GB (ls -l --si) here, gnome's built-in ISO burner reports my medium is 4,4GiB (which matches the size at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-R#Recordable_DVD_capacity_comparison)
Unless the change in Comment #3 was done after 11 Preview was assembled, some more packets may have to be dropped.

So I noticed. Looks like something changed after I did my trimmings :/
Ok, we trimmed a lot more fat, this should fit for final.
And Bill found a bug where boot.iso was making it onto the DVD iso which was bloating the space by a lot. This has been fixed and now we're well under space.
