    Deltaisos built on F10/F11 would save about half the download size (deltaisos built on Rawhide are not currently functional). If there is a F10/F11 (not Rawhide) machine that can access this filesystem, then running

    cd </pub/alt/stage directory>
    makedeltaiso 12-Beta-TC/Fedora-12-Beta-TC-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-i386-DVD.iso 12-Beta-RC1/Fedora-12-Beta-RC1-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-i386-DVD.iso 12-Beta-RC1/Fedora-12-Beta-RC1-i386-DVD/Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-i386-DVD.diso

    will generate disos which are about half the full size for TC->RC1, and about 2-3% of full size for RC1->RC2. The sizes and applydeltaiso times in minutes of the files I've generated are

    Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-i386-DVD.diso 1,577,077,261 7m
    Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-ppc-DVD.diso 1,803,348,472 9m
    Fedora-12-Beta-TC_RC1-x86_64-DVD.diso 1,693,468,563 8m
    Fedora-12-Beta-RC1_RC2-i386-DVD.diso 74,236,265 3m
    Fedora-12-Beta-RC1_RC2-ppc-DVD.diso 106,279,982 4m
    Fedora-12-Beta-RC1_RC2-x86_64-DVD.diso 52,431,247 3m

    Of course, to use these one must already have either TC or RC1 (probably TC since RC1 wasn't announced).

    If I've installed FC12-alpha and done yum updates from the rawhide repo, will I effectively have this FC12-beta

    are all the latest packages in the rawhide repo??

    I did a network install and couldn't find a mirror with fc12-beta packages, I only found fc12-beta iso's

    thanks in advance

    F11 on some peoples computers is stable. FC12 you'll be able to see the Gnome3 shell where as you wont be also to on 11 i do not think. or wait for FC13

    I am downloading the F12 Beta now and I will participate in testing as well as with feedback.

    I was able to download the Fedora 12 Beta on a i386(32-bit) DVD iso and the install went well and clean.

    RahulSundaram, thank you for your post. F12 Beta ==> Happy me.
