Yes it was, but just barely and checking on the smallest of the possible 12cm DVD maximum sizes suggests that I can make the filesystem enough larger for it to fit. I am testing 8800 now. Previously it was 8000. And it looks like the max is 4700000000/1024/512 = 8964. I'll see if the build has worked shortly, but won't be able to test the resulting iso until tonight. > If you're planning on doing this anyways it would be great if you could > perhaps become the maintainer of an official Fedora Games spin? We'll see. In principle I am willing to do it, but I want to make sure I am qualified. If I actually get it to work, I'll ask about details. I have access to i386 and x86_64 systems for doing builds. If we need both. Though I think for a livedvd i386 is probably good enough for the PC world. I don't have access to other architectures. I already noticed the kickstart file still refers to starfighter which seems to have been dropped. I'll file a bug on that after I double check things. > We would really like to see such a spin, but are short on manpower to > realize it. (even though it should not be too much work). Yeah, I saw the notes about that, but what worried me wasn't that I didn't fully grok what they were talking about. If it was just that it needed about 4.1 GB instead of 4GB, then I'm probably OK, because I am seeing and attempting to fix that. _______________________________________________ Fedora-games-list mailing list Fedora-games-list@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-games-list
