Description Vincent Bentley 2021-06-04 10:41:28 UTC
I needed to create a physical boot DVD for 13.0-RELEASE as my memory stick image for 13.0 would not boot on the old 64-bit PC I was working on. From memory, the 13.0-RELEASE amd64 DVD image needs to lose about 100MB-200MB to fit on a 4.7GB DVD.

This only affects those needing a 13.0-RELEASE image on physical DVD media.

The issue is similar to open bug 253483 that refers to 13-STABLE

Also similar to closed bug 255057 that refers to 13-STABLE

Duplicate of bug 253483

… sorry, I see that you already referenced 253483. I imagine that another report is not required.
Comment 3 Vincent Bentley 2021-06-07 12:49:05 UTC
The other two reports concern STABLE which is accepted that some things will be broken due to continuous change. However, I have raised this because the bug found it's way to RELEASE where there is a general expectation that things will be less broken. I only wanted to raise awareness that this bug found it's way to the 13.0-RELEASE version.
