A new system for distribution of EasyLFS?
Something came to my mind, something that could be either a good thing for EasyLFS or a really bad thing.
That something is an idea that would save space on the server, and it could save bandwidth for people who download EasyLFS both as 32- and 64-bit versions. But it also would make it a bit more complicated for people who only download one of these two version, which probably is the majority.
Okay, here's the plan: Instead of uploading two full images which each around 350MB (as it looks currently) I'd upload two images with each around 90MB, which only are the LiveCDs for 32- and 64-bit, without the installation-stuff. In addition to this there'd be an installation-package, which could easily be implemented into the LiveCD-images with a tool like ISO Master. It's really easy, and it's actually the way I put together the LiveCDs. That's one of the cool advantages of the Linux Live Scripts, that you can easily enhance a LiveCD with additional modules.
That way there would be only one installation-module (which anyway already fits both architectures) and two bare LiveCDs.
The user would then download the LiveCD for his system and the installation-package, put them together and then record it to CD for installation.
Now I need a few opinions. Would that be too complicated for people to do? Would it be better to just offer them ready-to-go CD-images?
Well, as said, a few opinions about this would be great.
