Thanks a lot for the explanation. It completely makes sense. If I find such a hosting service, I'll let you know. Thank you for your efforts in this area.
As I said before, for the current release I'll try to build Fedora 12 final version from Beta using Jigdo. It should not be as efficient as delta isos but still it should provide considerable savings (If the number of modified packages since then is not big).

Good luck

Just as an FYI -- when I re-installed the F12 beta and then did an update; there were 305 packages to either install or update. Most were updates but some appeared to be new packages installed during the update process. It was over 200mb -- which of course is less than downloading a whole CD again.

Yes that is much better than 3.3 GB download! I might even try to download drpms which should be much smaller.

Hi Folks,

am I understanding you all correctly in thinking if I install RC3, I should be able to do an update in a week or so and get the final version? I'm downloading RC3 now, the live CD's look sweet

Cool

I want to put it on a Sony Vaio laptop
the LiveCD's support a bluetooth mouse, wireless ethernet, and the webcam, right out of the box
Down the toilet with Vista

Installed RC 3 last night with no problems on a Pentium 4 desktop with 1 GB memory. It says Fedora 12 (Constantine) rather than Fedora 11.92(rawhide). So, we're really close to the real thing, right?

I just noticed that RC4 is available. http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/12-RC.4/
They must be churning them out every couple of days until release time next week (assuming they stick to the Nov 17 schedule).

nope, they're real release candidates. each one is supposed to be the final release, then we find the stuff that's broken.

if rc4 isn't good, we'll have to slip the release.

But we're still more than seven days from the official release date. If there were 1-2 issues with RC4, wouldn't you still have time to churn out another RC before syncing the mirrors? For those of us who are impatient, are you suggesting that RC4 will be identical to final if the release date remains unchanged?

pumpino: no, because there's a lot of other stuff to do in the week before release that relies on the final bits being done. and I couldn't possibly comment

Well I'm happy enough to test drive RC4. We're lucky to have the opportunity to try a last minute RC.

When will you be making a decision about whether or not to delay the release?
