Base vs Full

For some reason I haven't been able to find this on the wiki:

What extra packages are there on the Archlinux Full ISO, compared to the Base ISO?

Re: Base vs Full

The full ISO provides all packages in the current repo - base provides the packages in the base category within the current repo. Full details at archlinux.org/packages.

Re: Base vs Full

I like doing just the base system, then installing only what I want/need.  Keeps a clean, minimal system that way.

Re: Base vs Full

Base really is the best way to go imo.  The repos are changing all the time with more up-to-date and refined stuff.  If you install the full version, you'll probably update a majority of your packages anyway.

Re: Base vs Full

I think the base install more logical because what do you have with programs that you will never use ? wink

Re: Base vs Full

And if you are going to download ISO on the same machine that will have Arch installed, ftp is even better than base.
