Jesse vs jesse light

Mon Mar 14, 2016 11:19 pm

Simple question, what is the difference between raspbian jesse and raspbian jesse light?

Is there a compare list?

You can create your own.
For each disto do:

Code: Select all

dpkg --get-selections
then compare.

There isn't just one difference. In any case, it can make sense to install the Lite version and add to it because the Lite version can fit on a 2 gig sdcard that you might just configure as a base for future modifications on a bigger card.

Light doesn't have Xwindows and any of the graphical stuff that goes with it.

Jessie.zip expands to 4.3GB.
Jessie Light.zip expands to 1.3GB so 3GB of junk isn't included.

You must mount USB drives manually on Jessie Light. I was a bit disgruntled about this, but it is simple to do once you figure it out. :lol:

Kratos,

Yes. That is one great advantage of Lite.

Having a media auto mounted by some stupid GUI can often cause chaos and confusion.
