Subject: Wheezy release: CDs are not big enough any more...

Hey folks, Remembering the fun that we had during the Squeeze release with trying to make single-CD installations work well, it's time to consider what we're going to *claim* to support in Wheezy. We've had a history of supporting the following single-CD installations: * Gnome desktop from CD#1 * KDE desktop from "KDE CD#1" * XFCE desktop from "light CD#1" * LXDE desktop from "light CD#1" * base system only from netinst CD At this point, I'm skeptical that either of the first two are going to work acceptably with Wheezy. If that's the case, then we should warn people that they will need to use at least one of: * more CDs * a DVD * a network mirror to get a useful/useable installation. Gnome/KDE people: if you *can* do a single-CD installation for Wheezy, please say so. If not, we'll need to make sure we get documents updated (like the Release Manual), and maybe even consider extra release images (e.g. a 2GB USB stick image). Talk to me, please... -- Steve McIntyre, Cambridge, UK. [email protected] Into the distance, a ribbon of black Stretched to the point of no turning back
