Description Ronald Klop 2016-07-12 09:57:14 UTC
Downloaded the amd64 BETA1 ISO (873MB) and tried to burn a CD on Windows 10.
It complained that the ISO is too big for my 700 MB CD-r.
The bootonly iso (281MB) burns and runs ok.
If I look in the list of ISOs, the other *disc1.isos are within the limits, so only amd64 is affected.

NB: It is not a showstopper for me. I'm also happy if you just drop the amd64 disc1.iso for the release. ;-)

For stable/11, this was fixed in r303027.  I'd like to keep this PR open, however, since it will still be a problem for 12.0-RELEASE, as the system continues to grow.

Allow re@ to track this.

This was fixed prior to BETA2.
