Transcript

Summary

Live images oversized due to recent inclusion of m17n-* and scim-*:

  • The current inclusion of input-methods group in fedora-live-base.ks breaks the size of the KDE live images.
  • The english-only KDE live images don't have much need for these packages.
  • As a short term solution scim-python-pinyin will be replaced by the smaller scim-pinyin on the live images.
  • We should also talk to the Fedora I18N Group about size constraints.
  • Another big but mostly unneeded package is solar-backgrounds (KDE does not support the different times of day).
  • We'll suggest splitting solar-backgrounds into a *-common subpackage with shared artwork which will be required by solar-kde then.
  • Also the solar-backgrounds dependency should be moved from libgnome to a package higher up in the GNOME stack (which isn't included on the KDE spin).

TTY mods to kdmrc (switch X to tty1 per faster startup):

  • RexDieter has tested some modifications of kdmrc to use tty1 for KDM (like GDM is doing).
  • This change will be included in the next release of kde-settings.
