Yes. There was a lot of multiplicity in the /var/cache/apt/archives directory we now delete.

Those trying 1004 for the first time, please be aware of the fact that on the snapshots, you do NOT need to run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh as it is embedded. Network installs will still require it. From snap install you just have to plug an MD in and roll.

Is there any way to hack edit our 1004 net installs to add that feature?

Follow-up:

I'm downloading now. 1,200KB/sec,... thank the Lord!

Any-who...

I want to post a press-release statement to LXer (Linux news aggregation site) and also maybe PM Nixie-Pixel (Red-headed Gaming/Open-Source Video Blogger) on the Beta of LinuxMCE 1004 being released. Any objections??

Remember, I got ADHD... Act quick!

OOOOH,...

You's are so lucky,... I had my right F-U finger on "Enter."

JKing... I'm still jazzed about this, as is everybody. This is a big step.

The latest snapshot (LMCE-1004-20120813210126353.iso) is also smaller in size...... Is that correct?

Yes. It got too big adding the debugging symbols back in... so we started trying to find places to save space.

We found some. We could actually drop another 320 MB with different videos.
I never quit... I just ping out.

Just some feedback on the Beta install....

I did a fresh install on my core. Installation went smoothly.
All my media is on a second harddrive in my core, and was detected and available, just like it was on my previous install.
Some media was public and some were private.
Next on the list is 1-wire and X10....
Then I might be getting a Bluecherry PV-155 capture card next week or so for Cameras....  ;D

Should I do a fresh install, or can I keep using my current 10.04 install?  I guess what I'm asking is, am I missing anything by not installing the snapshot.  So, am I?
