Distribución de Debian 2.0
ante la polémica que surgió con el distribuidor que les comenté hace poco
he buscado otro el cual puede que sea algo mejor que el que dije antes.
Además está ubicado en Alemania por lo que devería llegar antes el paquete.
Les envio las páginas que tiene dicho distribuidor (15kb):
Creen que este distribuidor es más fiable / más calidad que el anterior?
Este incluye los directorios contrib, non-us (creo) y non-free (tb creo)
como se puede ver en www.debian.org.
Title: Debian 2.0:
We offer Debian 2.0 on 3 CDs:
- Binary 1
This CD contains all binary packages of the main section. The CD
is bootable; if your computer supports booting from CD you don't have
to create installation floppies.
- Binary 2
This CD contains the non-free, contrib, non-US and experimental
binary packages and their source packages. In addition this CD
contains some source packages that didn't fit on the third CD.
Due to license restrictions we cannot provide all packages from
non-free and non-US on CD. For your information we have a list of the included non-free and non-US packages.
This CD contains the source code of the main section. Because one CD
is a bit too small for this we moved some parts to the second CD.
If you need Debian 2.0 for more than one architecture you can
share the Source CD between architectures. Currently the m68k
architecture might need only one binary CD, but this will change when
all Debian packages will be recompiled for the m68k
architecture. That's why we don't offer the binary CDs as an extra
product. If you really need more architectures and you don't want two
identical source CD please mention this in the order. We hope to find
a way to save you some bucks.
