Default Why CentOS 5.2 is so large?

Michael,

did you get an official announcement for 5.2? I didn't. To my knowledge any 5.2 release yet is
unofficial. Therefor I wouldn't use it.

Hi, folks.

I have download the DVD image of CentOS 5.2. Comparing with the DVD
image of Upstream OS Provider, I got a surprise:

The size of the DVD image of Upstream OS Provider is just 2.87
GB(i386), but the size of the DVD image of CentOS 5.2(i386) is so
large that is 3.74 GB!

I kown that CentOS's developers did very excellent work on how to make
the Upstream OS more availability and add many good free software on
the CentOS. But where can I got the change or add list of CentOS? and
why the size change is so large? I think it is very useful for my
farther employ of CentOS.

Thanks!

(Yes, I can read the ReleaseNotes, but it is still can not disabuse
me, the secsion of "5.6. Packages added by CentOS that are not
included upstream" is so little.)

as Tim already wrote, CentOS 5.2 is not released yet, so don't use it.

Also please note there are two DVDs on RHN:
the server version with 2,934 MB
and the client version with 3,682 MB

CentOS distributes only one DVD which contains everything bundled into
one DVD.

Kind Regards,
Dirk

Thanks all of you!

You got to the point of the size issue. And I will be more patient for
the release of CentOS 5.2. :-)

This is because you download a not-released version of CentOS 5.2. The
iso you have is faulty.


Isn't it just the x86_64 ISO that's wrong?

...

So please wait for the official
announcement before starting to download.

I don't wan to be rude. But you won't get any official
support/news/help about this until the release has been announced
officially.

Can I ask everything to have a little more patience please. It will be
released really soon know (famous last words :-) )

Regards,
Tim

Hoping the problem magically goes away by ignoring it is the
"microsoft approach to programming" and should never be allowed.

But, as you know, the famous distro users had jammed the download
server when new distro launched didn't show their hate but love of the
distro.

Yes, I know. And I very appreciate the CentOS developers' hard work.
If you want me just waiting and keeping quiet, I will do as you ask.
:-)

I'm sorry for my impatient conduct. :-P
