It's similar to dividing by zero

It's not similar to putting corrosive chemicals in your ear
But I'll do that instead:(

Exactly how many GBs does the entire Ubuntu repo take up? I bet you it's over a TB.

i highly doubt that. (please someone prove me wrong if you can :))

I know the Debian repos (compressed) come on 5 DVDs plus a DVD of later updates. So that could add up to as much as 28 GB but is probably a few gigs less. Plus it does not include any packages which are larger than (I think) 200 MB. So the full size of the repos might be closer to 31 GB.

And I think the Ubuntu repos are a little bit bigger than the Debian ones. A full mirror of the compressed packages for a recent Ubuntu release might be about 35-40 GB. Not 100% sure about the exact number.

Note that there's no way to *install* everything at once, as some packages conflict with each other.

trying to contemplate the vastness of the repo is like bending spoons with your mind

What about a dual-layer Blu-Ray disc? How many of THOSE do the repos equal compressed?

Debian is available on a single blu-ray.

You couldn't possibly do it anyway because APT wouldn't let you if you're going mix dependencies like that. There are going to be something that you'll install which will remove others. Besides you'll break your system anyway when it starts pulling in drivers which you don't need.

Anyone feel like calculating the square root of -1?

There must be a stat somewhere that says what the total size of the default repositories are.

You don't know how tempted I am to open Synaptic, choose "All", hit ctrl+a and then "mark for install"... apply.

... oh, and wait like a week. Because our internet aint' that fast!

There, I did the "impossible". See wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imaginary_unit).

I have a server that mirrors Hardy, Jaunty and Karmic repos (main, universe, multiverse, restricted, backports, updates, etc etc).

It's 78 GB of packages. So, not even close to a TB.

You beat me to it. APT won't let you clash dependencies.

But it is possible to have drivers installed that are not being used without breaking your system.

Nothing happends,
because he said "Download", not install.
