Disk space requirements for x64
|Reported by:||tsg1zzn||Owned by:|
In the book, version 7.4, chapter 2.2. Creating a New Partition it says: "A minimal system requires a partition of around 2.8 gigabytes (GB). This is enough to store all the source tarballs and compile the packages."
However, already in chapter 5 I went over that temporarily. After compiling and installing gcc for the first time, but before deleting the directory I checked the disk space and df reported 3.3 gig total, around 295 mb free.
This is on x86_64, which has larger binaries than x86.
