Thread: Quick Question CD vs DVD again.

    Default Quick Question CD vs DVD again.

    Hello again So i used the CD to install my Opensuse 11.4 64bit a few days ago recieved all updates and everything seems to be working fine. Would there be any benefit of the dvd atm? I am just curious what advantage it would have over my CD install now that I have recieved all my updates. Thanks

    everything available on the DVD (and more) is available to you for
    instal by having the oss, non-oss, update and packman repos enabled
    and refreshed (no need to constantly refresh oss and non-oss, as they
    are static)

    The DVD would be useful if you want to install new software while offline (not connected to the internet).

    The chances are that this is not important to you, in which case you are already all set and there is no need for the DVD.

    In my opinion DVD has more capacity. Better the installation DVD than Live CD.
