Debian Squeeze: Difference between a CD and a DVD image?


Hello Friends,

For past few weeks I have completely been moved to Debian 6.0 (Squeeze). Though as a newbie, I faced some issues with it, but ultimately everything's working fine.

I had installed my system with Debian CD-1.

However, I have a question that what is/are difference(s) between CD-1 and DVD-1 images of Debian? Since CD image is around 750 MB whereas DVD image is 4.37 GB large, so apparently DVD-1 is containing some extra stuff. I searched over Internet as well as Debian wiki, but couldn't find anything informative.

So, could anyone suggest what is/are difference(s) between these two images?

TIA.

Go to http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/release/current/. Pick your architecture, and toward the bottom of this list, you'll see directories "list-XXX" where XXX will be cd, dvd, etc. In those directories are txt.gz files which list the packages and contents of each image.

Those lists will tell you. Unfortunately, you're going to have to do it the hard way, manually.

Or, you can uncompress them to regular text files, and use diff to tell you what extra packages are on the DVD.

There really is no easy answer other than to look at the list.

The basic install however will be pretty much the same. There are more packages included with dvd1 and I beleive there is a system rescue tool on the dvd but am not sure.

I install with a netboot or netinstall image generally.

If you are thinking that your problems are from not having a full install I don't think that is the case. Throwing more packages, at random, on to the system will not be helpful.

You should post a thread on each individual problem.
