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