I have made available a deltaiso from the i386 Preview DVD ISO to the
i386 RC2 ISO. It is 233945224 bytes (about 6-7% the size of the full
ISO) with MD5 f0413ba9d23be4dd1778a06f35c80a43, and can be downloaded from
(after clicking on the "Proceed to File Download Page" link). To apply
it, one needs to have the deltarpm package installed, and then run the
(assuming the first two files are in the current directory). On a
reasonably fast machine this should complete in about 15-20 minutes. Of
course, one should check the sha256sum of the final ISO (listed in
07f1229ad5717d63d2e08d556b9221be71a825ad83b9090b4632bf7208189bf6) - I
only provided the MD5 of the diso to allow a quick check that the
download isn't corrupted. I don't intend to make disos for the other
ISOs, since it would be far easier for someone who doesn't have to
download the full ISO first. This was just done as a demonstration.
Since the Preview for each of the platforms is already available on
numerous mirrors, I suggest that the RC server should only host disos,
with the Preview first being downloaded from elsewhere.
I've also made available a deltaiso from the x86_64 Preview DVD ISO to
the x86_64 RC2 ISO. It is 240478767 bytes (5.6% of the size of the full
ISO) with MD5 e82661f647b1509cefe7b63c8ad5e14b, and can be downloaded from
(after waiting for the 10-second countdown, then clicking on the
"Proceed to File Download Page" link). The procedure for applying it is
similar to the one for i386.
