Install w/o language packs? solved

Postby enchance on Mon Nov 19, 2007 5:29 am

Can I install Daryna without any of the language packs? I only need one, which is english. Downloading the packs takes up quite a long time and may take up extra space.

If you choose english as language no extra language pack is needed as english is the default
If you want to be really sure keep an eye on the install "meter" and when it approaches about 82 % it's time to download language packs. If that happens (which should not be the case) just click Skip that appears at that time

Really, you can skip it? Where can I see that? Can you give me a screenshot (if you have time)? Downloading those language packs really extend the install process.

To get a screenshot I'd have to install...
As you know (?) there's a little box with a "meter" for progress and you can read things like "installing gnome" flashing by.
When it comes to "installing language packs" a button labeled Skip appears. Pushing it skips language packs, but nothing else. They can be downloaded and installed later if you wish.
It's the only "Skip button" so there's not much room for error

I gotta look out for that. Then again I probably wasn't watching the installation. Thanks.
