And when it was finally installed and being aware that kernel 3.8.1-2

"going all the way" with the latest stalbe kernel).

So, both make and gcc are important.

Hell, what degree of difficulty is there to add a 358Kb and a 4Kb file
for make and gcc, respectively, to the default install list?

It's a little more than a few KB's?

The following NEW packages are going to be installed:
binutils gcc gcc47 glibc-devel linux-glibc-devel make site-config

7 new packages to install.
Overall download size: 11.5 MiB. After the operation, additional 52.2
MiB will be used.

So? All these are on the DVD anyway and will take less than 30 seconds to transfer and install.

Gimp Help is 27MB big to 'download' and this is installed by default. And how many people use Gimp?

Why not add the kernel-devel files as well... aren't they needed as
well for building...

These are installed by default. You used to have to download and install kernel-source but this is no longer necessary.

Your already installing the next kernel as well, so it seems a moot
point since your not running the released kernel, I only have
3.7.10-1.1-desktop installed on my test system?

What exactly is the question you are asking here?

PS, I use gimp so the help file is useful,

Fine, then when you do decide that you need Gimp Help then install it. But it shouldn't be installed by default (27MB worth to 'download')

I do have an nvidia system
but it's not running at present...

Sorry, don't understand. Why isn't it running?
