Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Be more precise on space requirements
=== Disk Space Requirements ===
As of April 2019, building FlightGear requires about 11 Gigabytes 12 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibyte GiB] of disk space. Note that this includes downloaded source codefor [[SimGear]] and FlightGear, generated build files and the large [[FGData]] repository (about 5 Gigabytes 6 GiB for that one).
=== List of compiled programs ===
== Disk usage and build time ==
Keeping compiled programs, source code and data repositories requires some hard disk space: it will take something like 12 GB 12 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibyte GiB] of space for just [[SimGear]], FlightGear and [[FGData]] (i.e., the SIMGEAR, FGFS and DATA components).
With an Intel Core i7 860 CPU (2.80 GHz) purchased in 2009, compiling [[SimGear]] and FlightGear 2019.2 with option <code>-j8</code> takes about 14 minutes. If you don't have a fast machine and build using only one core, it may require several hours.
