I see. I was thinking of FreeBSD 7.0 whose disc1 is 509 MB in size,
leaving almost 200 MB free for a standard 700 MB CD.
Q: Has FreeBSD 7.1 REALLY filled up 189 MB with bug fixes and new
hardware support?
Ubuntu 8.04 has room for the linux kernel, for GCC, for tons of
packages including almost all of OpenOffice 2.2.1 (which is HUGE),
GIMP, Firefox, X of course, and quite a few other things on their 700
MB CD, including support for lots of new hardware that BSD does not
have.
BSD has source code -- which I personally would rather have than GIMP,
etc. -- but do the sources take up that much room? They take 70-80
MB, but the bulk of that is already included in the above 509 MB of
7.0 disc1. (BTW, having full sources as part of FreeBSD is in my
opinion one of the coolest features of BSD so that should NEVER be
compromised.)
So, I where the BSD free space is going??
Here is a quick list (not exhaustive or definitive) of the libraries
that Firefox 3.0 requires, and their sizes in bytes:
3969 firefox
8332 firefox-bin
1080753 libX11.so.6
9564 libXcomposite.so.1
40524 libXcursor.so.1
9040 libXdamage.so.1
64848 libXext.so.6
18716 libXfixes.so.3
37019 libXi.so.6
9279 libXinerama.so.1
26618 libXrandr.so.2
35933 libXrender.so.1
132271 libatk-1.0.so.0
478869 libcairo.so.2
204002 libfontconfig.so.1
341460 libfreebl3.so
514577 libfreetype.so.9
603150 libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0
102751 libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0
760129 libglib-2.0.so
13540 libgmodule-2.0.so.0
251326 libgobject-2.0.so.0

209648 libplds4.so.1
145260 libsmime3.so
210076 libsoftokn3.so
409876 libsqlite3.so
180320 libssl3.so
13296 libxpcom.so
14678048 libxul.so
These total 27696575 bytes or 26.4 MB. Notice this includes some of X
(but I am sure some of these libraries include other libraries that
are not included in this total. This is not a full DAG analysis.)
Firefox also links to libc, libz, libm and other common libs, but they
are part of the base system so they are not on this list.
Compressed using tar czpf (gzip) these files occupy 11003400 bytes or
10.5 MB.
Compressed using tar cjpf (bzip) these files occupy 10124743 bytes or
9.7 MB!
