I'm afraid, no. Now Mandriva has been replaced by Mageia, so no info
about the Mandriva installation is available any more.

I know that and yes, I will take my time and compare packages with a
Mandriva installation on another machine. But I guess the difference
is not in size of the single packages, may be more in dependencies. If
I can find the time I can re-install Mandriva and gather a list, then
re-install Mageia and then compare the lists. Not before next week.

Anyhow, my question was more like "has anybody else experienced this". :)
