    Default Just installed opensuse 11.3, not it's installing a bunch of packages like myspell-russian?!

    Why is YAST installing a ton of packages I never asked for like myspell-russian?

    So myspell-russian is part of OpenOffice and would normally be selected based on your installation Local I think. If you did not pick Russia or somewhere where Russian is spoken, I can't say for sure just what you did. However, as many times as I have installed openSUSE, I have never had that happen. Perhaps you were took quick on the (mouse) trigger when you installed openSUSE and picked someplace you did not intend on picking. What other things are being installed for you that you think should have not been selected? What area of the world did you want to pick?

    The default openSUSE 11.3 installation appears to install English, German and Russian as standard

    john_hudson, I am not sure about that. At least I have not seen any Russian or German packages installed on my system. Is this due to something I just always do? I guess I am not sure about that but I only see English packages being installed.

    I have had French and German installed in the past and fresh installs have normally installed French and German; with 11.3 I got German and Russian but no French on two different laptops without doing anything different from what I have done for pretty well every fresh install.

    Live CD or DVD?

    I thought so.

    The live CD has only a few languages, already installed (so that you have them available when you
    run it as a "live"), and I guess it first copies it's own image (which contains those languages),
    then later adds rpms.

    My guess is that you have to go to yast language selection and remove those languages you do not want.

    I think that the installation from a live should have a phase removing unneeded packages from the
    image. Dunno if it is possible. You might write a bugzilla about that.

    So the Live CD install is placing multiple languages as opposed to the default or selected language. I always install from the DVD and have only gotten English by default installed so far. This whole thing is starting to make sense to me now if one is using a Live CD. Thanks for the insight Carlos E. R.

    Yes, I think so.

    The difference is that the live is already an installed system ready to run. So, what it has to do
    is simply copy itself to the HD with a few modifications, I guess. The DVD has a few small "images",
    for typical minimal installs of each pattern, and then a lot of rpms to install one by one. It is
    much more flexible.
