Description Leslie Satenstein 2007-03-04 04:02:32 UTC
This is not a bug but a request. Description of problem: I had to reinstall FC6 after hd corruption. After installation (chosing to update desktop mode and web page development), I was presented with 300 updates to be installed. On a DSL line, at 200k this took about 6 hours. In the 6 hours I downloaded 2.1 gigs of patches requiring 1.2 gigs of upload control strings for the 2.1 gig downloads. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): FC6 was version as of March 3, 2007 How reproducible: Do a fresh install, chosing to update from dvd. Or even worse, do a minimal install and then chose to update using package updater. monitor times and bytes transfered. Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: 6 hours and not yet finished Expected results: Would like to see some improvements in this area, as it actually takes about 12 hours to restore the system to what it was prior to the hard disk corruption (failure).

I used system-->system admin-->System Monitor (gnome desktop) to plot the bytes transfered and the quantity. I did have problems with the "unofficial" respin DVD. Ergo, I started with the official release of FC6.

http://fedoraunity.org/re-spins Spending engineering time on respins will take a lot of resources away from getting features into the next release. It is not a simple matter of just running the compose tools, the changes to kernel, the gtk stack, udev / hal, any number of other components change how anaconda works, and much work would need to go into anaconda to make an updated anaconda for the respin. With doing Fedora releases every 6~ months already that is just too much overhead.

Jesse I thought this bug was closed a long long time ago. KILL IT. It should have disappeared in 2007. Happy New Year.
