I did a standalone install myself, and can confirm that 3.6 GiB is
used during installation.  So that is the minimum requirement.  /usr/
used 2631 MiB and /var used 770 MiB.  I still suggest we recommend 10
GiB also for standalone installs, to make it easier to write the

Actually, that is by design.  A broken design, I can assure you, but
not a build error.  The ispell dictionaries were removed from the
default installation when we tried to fit everyting into one CD, as
the myspell dictionaries used by OOo was more important to include.
I've added the ispell dictionaries to the default install.

so the sizes mentioned above just got a little bit bigger. :)

Happy hacking,
