Univention Bugzilla – Bug 33701
Show information about app size
Last modified: 2019-01-03 07:19:21 CET
I would like to see information about how much HDD space is required to install the App.
apt-get shows how much space is used after installation.
This is not so easy: While the installed_size for each package is available, some apps do more than that.
UCS@school: While ucs-school-umc-installer is small, the app (when used) is not. The installed size might be technically correct, the user still has to provide more space than what is given
UCC: The image is downloaded in postinst and significantly increases "actual size" (!= "theoretical size")
Some apps may build a database, pre-compile templates, etc. I am not sure whether the sum of debian package sizes is a reasonable number to present to the user. If we do this, we should present the "actual size" which cannot be determined reliably.
I could think of a "InstalledSize=200" in the ini file.
Yes, the size should be configurable via ini file.
