All FC9 6 CDs?


I am sure that this is answered somewhere but I can't find it. So if you could answer or point me to the answer I would appreciate it.

What is on the the CDs? Which CDs MUST I install?

Thanks

You'll need all of them as they scatter the packages out it seems, depending on what you select to install. If you have a DVD burner, that's the best route to take if you're gonna have to create a CD or DVD that is to install from.

What's on the CDs? Well, everything you need to get a working Fedora Core OS.

Do you have a adsl connection ?
If so choice KDE OR Gnome CD and after installation you can add the the desktop you did not have install in the first place.
IN my case I only download the Live KDE version and install the rest afterwards , they produce as they stated on their website 6 spin off fore a specific use.
Of course their are more detailed information on their web site

all the best

I just want a basic installation with network capabilities. Blackbox, no other WM. I still need all 6?

Just get the DVD version. There's no way we're going to read through all 6 CDs and guess if you need them.
Or get a Live CD as indicated above and then install the rest from the net (only if you have DSL cxn).

For anybody that's searching this topic, I've just done a basic default "office productivity"
Installation of core9 and it needed the first 3 CDs.

Any time you are installing a month or more after release (and you have a good internet connection) your best bet is to use the liveCD. In that first month a huge chunk of the packages have updates. So if you download the CD set or the DVD you are just wasting bandwidth. You will be downloading the CDs/DVD and then, when you do your first update, you will be replace the vast majority of those packages with newer versions. Where you wanted to use blackbox you would have to initially use one of the other windows managers and then switch to blackbox after install.
