Default Install selected language(s) from http/ftp
I've got a post in the hungarian forum which explains it would be good to download only cd1 and then during install download the chosen language(s) from http/ftp. Something like openbsd's network install...

of course, users should set up networks prior to this procedure.

is there a chance this feature will be available in the future?

How big would be this download (because it would be only one language)?

well i donno but if a 200 mb cd contains abt 15 langs, then one lang pack could be abt 17-18 mb... or they should be tarballed so dl sizes were more little.

This would be overwelming for many people then...
Not to say that you need to configure your network. If you're on a bridge modem, you need to configure PPPoE too...
Dunno... :roll:

well, if we dont get anything but languages on that second cd, i think BerVi is right. I'd rather download and install a pbi with my language than a full CD as i will never touch the other languages. But if we start shipping some more stuff in the second CD...

By the way, dont we have enough space to place the linux compatibility layer in by default now?

if we are talkin about a pbi, it should be still downloaded during install, and, for example, should be placed for future use in the default user's home dir.

i agree with u about the linux stuff.

All I want is native FreeBSD Java and Flash- all other programs that don't run on FreeBSD is useless anyway...If we start using all the time linuxcompatlayer- then nobody want's to port their application to FreeBSD.

This is the chicken and egg paradigm...

If we don't offer Flash, Java and RealAudio easily at a click on PC-BSD, then less people will use it, we won't reach our goal, and software companies won't get interest in PC-BSD :roll:
