So RC (and final) are getting closer, as usual the livecds are
problematic to get nice contents, while staying within the 700M limit

Current RC build got me this:

668M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Africa-India-i586-CD.iso
693M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Africa-India-x86_64-CD.iso

703M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Asia-Noindia-i586-CD.iso
728M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Asia-Noindia-x86_64-CD.iso

684M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Europe1-Americas-i586-CD.iso
709M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Europe1-Americas-x86_64-CD.iso

697M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Europe2-i586-CD.iso
722M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-GNOME-Europe2-x86_64-CD.iso

662M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Africa-India-i586-CD.iso
686M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Africa-India-x86_64-CD.iso

710M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Asia-Noindia-i586-CD.iso
734M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Asia-Noindia-x86_64-CD.iso

690M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Europe1-Americas-i586-CD.iso
714M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Europe1-Americas-x86_64-CD.iso

720M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Europe2-i586-CD.iso
744M	Mageia-2-rc-LiveCD-KDE4-Europe2-x86_64-CD.iso

So atleast every cd with size > 700M need to loose some stuff...

So please help out with suggestions...

You can check out current contents here:


Files are:
*.langs      - Supported languages on the CD
*.lst        - installed package list, sorted alphabetically
*.lst.full   - installed packages list, sorted by size

Now, remember that the livecds are squashfs compressed images,
so in order to drop ~20M on a cd, I need to drop ~30M-100M of
rpms depending on content...

Also if you find something missing that relly _must_ be on the
cds (not just nice to have)... please comment on that too
