Description Antonio Mario Savio D'Costa 2011-10-17 12:31:57 EDT
Description of problem: Live CD (i686) (BitTorrent) does not contain GCC and Open Office(or any other word processor). Important for a programmer and for Office Work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 15

How reproducible: NA

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results: Not available

Expected results: Include GCC and a word processor in Fedora 16 (live CD).

Additional info: The Live CD (i686) (BitTorrent) is less than 600 MB. A Little more could have been squeezed in as an average blank writable CD is of 700MB.
A 100 MB more does not make much of a difference while downloading more than 300MB.

Thank You.

openoffice does not fit.
gcc would seem really wierd to ship on the live cd
Comment 2 Bruno Wolff III 2011-10-17 15:06:06 EDT
libreoffice is too big to fit on CD sized images. The main CD images aren't specifically targeting developers so that gcc isn't needed and is unlikely to be included.
The CD sized desktop spin used to include abiword. I don't see it called out directly now.
