Description Florian Best univentionstaff 2013-12-10 11:54:39 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.
Comment 1 Dirk Wiesenthal univentionstaff 2013-12-12 14:16:15 CET
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.
Comment 2 Stefan Gohmann univentionstaff 2013-12-17 08:37:30 CET
Yes, the size should be configurable via ini file.
