Re: Fedora17 RC3 Beta Released

Oh yeah, I was wondering why the install DVDs were so small? I remember the F16 DVDs to be 3.5 GB. This one is just 2.3 GB?! Any idea?

Re: Fedora17 RC3 Beta Released

This is what Andre Robatino said on devel list

Quote:
AFAIK no one has completely figured this out yet. I noticed that the
libreoffice-langpack-* packages are on the F16 DVD but not later, and based on
the average size and number of these that seems to account for about half of the
size difference. Here are links to package lists (sorted by size in 1K-blocks)
for the i386 F16 and F17 Alpha TC1 DVDs (the size reduction happened at Alpha
TC1).

http://robatino.fedorapeople.org/siz...1-i386-DVD.txt
So, basically, no one knows for sure.

Too bad btrfs isn't in the installer, but GIMP 2.8 makes up for that :P

I am not sure what you mean here? What's the problem with ext4 stability?

Re: Fedora17 RC3 Beta Released

not aware of any issues with ext4.

as to why btrfs is missing, to avoid re-typing all this:

https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipe...ch/014159.html

Also, just to keep it straight: this is Beta RC3. The third release candidate of the Beta release.

Re: Fedora17 RC3 Beta Released

Adam, Is the Beta RCs supposed to demand internet connection for installation? If I cancel setting up the network, installer exits!! Otherwise, F17 install in my laptop is very "well behaved".

P.S. I was not sure if this warranted a separate thread and so popped the question here.

No you don't need internet to install it.

It's installed in my laptop and it's amazing

Works very well.
Very stable and fast.

I love gnome 3.4

Did you install from Live CD or DVD? No internet need for installation for Live CD. This internet requirement is only with DVD.

Re: Fedora17 RC3 Beta Released

DVD doesn't require internet, either.

Now, I have run into an issue in the past where installing using the DVD image required an internet connection if you put the DVD image onto a USB stick and didn't tell it where to find the installation repos, or if you created it in a way other that using the livecd-tools which makes the necessary changes to find the repos.
