Hi all, just wondering if anyone can tell me why there are 2 DVD downloads for SLES, one is 3 Gb, the other is 4 Gb.
Whats the difference between the 2? Is it something to do with SP2?

Thanks, regards Peter.

Hi
DVD2 contains the src rpms which is not required for the install.

aha, thanks for that Malcolm. FYI I'm playing with SLES to set up a Zimbra mail server and am also going to try setting up an Own Cloud server too. Should be fun!
I suppose I could do all this with OpenSuse, I might end up doing just that if I want to make these projects permanent as I'm not about to buy licenses for SLES servers just for home projects.

Cheers, Peter.
