The original point, though, was that for those
who want a more current
DVD for installation or upgrade, it would be useful to have a
remastered DVD that had those updated packages on it.
That's the original assertion/request/question. So talking about Live
media (which doesn't meet that requirement) doesn't really add anything
to the topic, because no live media is going to have /all/ of the
necessary updates on it, because no live media has all of the
packages on it (that's only on the full installation DVD).
Please go back and reread Sebastian's original post in this thread.
Then follow the link to his referenced e-mail, from Andreas. The
question is *specifically* about an updated installation medium with the
current versions of the RPMs on it, as was done with 10.1.
the problem is not the "live" part. The
problem was the "update" part. I
always understood, that meant the cd was a regular weekly built. Alas
The "Live" part is not part of this discussion. You (and a few others)
are conflating the original request - for updated *installation* media
(ie, the 4.7 GB installation DVD used for installations and upgrades)
with the GNOME and KDE Live media. The latter are not part of
Sebastian's request, as near as I can tell.
Sebastian, if I'm wrong about this, please clarify.
and you can build what ever you want, up to 32Gb as
32Gb flash cards are
cheap nowaday (I have lot of them around me, approx $20 each)
Of course. But that's not the topic that was asked about.
I even have blu-ray disks at hand (25Gb)
so do *not* feel blocked by disk size anymore
Yes, and I can get a 4 TB hard drive as well. That has no relevance to
the request for a remastered installation DVD with the updates
incorporated into it. It's about a media download that has stuff from
the update channel integrated into it so new users downloading the media
don't have to download a 4.7 GB DVD ISO, burn it, use it for
installation, and then run an online update that downloads potentially
mutliple gigabytes of packages post-install.
