Ubuntu distribution gives a install CD that has only basic OS and packages. This works fine as it is expected that you will load drivers, packages off the network/internet. Most of the other distributions have LiveCD and Full Disk.

So, I am looking for complete disk (like fedora has one 3.6GB ISO with most of the packages including g++/gcc, autoconf, drivers, etc).

Reason: In my case, my Motherboard(Gigabyte GA-FXA-990) has parts that are not supported by Ubuntu in default distribution CD, so, I am bound to compile stuff and load it, but all the ubuntu packages actually fetch things from internet, and they dont have code there to compile. Also, default installation does not install gcc, autoconf, and other development packages needed to compile.

Any suggestions? Sandeep

You could create your own installation media using ubuntu-builder –  blvdeer Jan 11 '13 at 18:49

Ubuntu also has a DVD. "Also, default installation does not install gcc, autoconf, and other development packages needed to compile." - Because they're not core packages. –  Uri Herrera Jan 11 '13 at 19:01
    
@blveer, ubuntu-builder is for someone that already has a installed distribution and is able to connect to web to change it. However, your other suggestion "the UCK" looks promising as I do have ubuntu vmware image. –  Sandeep Jan 12 '13 at 3:15
    
@uri, ubuntu is DVD only because their liveInstallation packages is now bigger than what a CD can hold.. –  Sandeep Jan 12 '13 at 3:17
