Full installation

No problem.

Make the TeXlive installation smaller

Even if the recommended distribution is the ConTeXt Standalone, one can install ConTeXt from the TeXlive website or from DVD TeXlive. Full installation contains over 3700 packages (ca 7 GB) covering all TeXs (not only ConTeXt) and takes plenty of time.

However, one can opt for customized installation which skips stuff unusable for ConTeXt. The following list shows which collections of packages can be checked out from the full list. Both time and the number of packages to be installed will drop below 50%.

Legend to the list of collections

+++ means yes, % means no, %? means probably no, +? means probably no but we are not sure
