"FC4-i386-SRPMS-disc1.iso" OR "FC4-i386-disc1.iso"


Fedora 4:

I real basic question - which .iso files do I download
"FC4-i386-SRPMS-disc1.iso" OR "FC4-i386-disc1.iso"? Are both types required, what's the difference between the two?

I'm using the following mirror
"ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/fedora.redhat.com/4/i386/iso/"
and will probably download the dvd.iso - out of interest would this be a composite of the SRPMS or non-SRPMS files?

Cheers replyees.

If you are trying to install Fedora then you would need i386 ones. SRPMS are the source rpms. i386 one contains packages build from SPRMS. SPRMS are generally not required.

Edit: SRPMS are generally not required for the initial installation but should you get into building RPMS then you would need source rpms.

Thumbs up

Ah - that makes sense - being open source and all.

Cheers Tex, that clears that up.
