Re: Fedora 11 RC2 installation testing

I have made available a deltaiso from the i386 Preview DVD ISO to the i386 RC2 ISO. It is 233945224 bytes (about 6-7% the size of the full ISO) with MD5 f0413ba9d23be4dd1778a06f35c80a43, and can be downloaded from


... To apply it, one needs to have the deltarpm package installed, and then run the command

applydeltaiso Fedora-11-Preview-i386-DVD.iso Fedora-11-Preview_rc2-i386-DVD.diso Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso

Hmm...  Make the technology work *for* you.  A novel idea.

Maybe the GA could be distributed the same way, like to mirrors and end users. It only works for places that already have the previous image (i.e., Preview in this case), but that's at least the testers.

Worth it?
