Chapter 3. Packages you need to download

Below is a list of all the packages you need to download for building the basic system. The version numbers printed correspond to versions of the software that is known to work and which this book is based on. If you experience problems which you can't solve yourself, download the version that is assumed in this book (in case you download a newer version).

The listed file sizes refer to the sizes of the .tar.gz archives. Sometimes you can find .tar.bz2 archives, but as .tar.gz is still the most widely used format, that size is listed.
