Description Han-Wen Nienhuys 2008-05-20 11:14:20 EDT
Preupgrade 0.9.3 on F8. - mac mini ppc upgrade: boot into upgrade. "downloading stage2.img" - this hangs forever. After an hour, I reboot - lenovo t60 (x86): spends the entire night trying to download stage2.img (this is before rebooting). It would be nice to have a download progress bar per package and/or a debug message explaining where the downloaded packages go. Also, where do I find the log file ? I may have an incredibly slow mirror, but it's strange that individual packages did not cause any problems.

Once you reboot, you're out of the preupgrade and into the upgrade. So this is not really a preupgrade problem. > - mac mini ppc upgrade: boot into upgrade.

This is expected to take a while - sometimes several hours, if we pick a slow mirror. You can change the mirror by editing the "method=http://..." item in the boot commandline. > It would be nice to have a download progress bar per package and/or a debug > message explaining where the downloaded packages go.

Boot images are in /boot/upgrade. > I may have an incredibly slow mirror, but it's strange that individual packages > did not cause any problems. Packages are downloaded from a different mirror than boot images. Sorry that the mirrors are sometimes slow and the file is large, but we can't really do much about those things. Try changing your method=XXX to a different (faster) mirror and see if that helps. Or you could make a bigger (200MB or so) /boot partition so you don't have to download stage2.img during the upgrade.

I understand that mirror speed is out of your control, but could we have a progress bar? I have reason to believe that something was wrong (I saw a ufpr.br download mirror, which generally does 500k/sec).
Comment 3 Han-Wen Nienhuys 2008-05-21 10:59:30 EDT
update: it now works, so it was a slow mirror. Still, the progress bar would be nice.
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2008-05-21 11:43:31 EDT
The progress bar would need to be in anaconda, not preupgrade ,right? You're booted into the installer when you want this. If so I'll reassign this to anaconda.

I think Han-Wen was in the last preupgrade stage, not in anaconda. At least that's when I encountered an alert message that interrupted preupdate while the status line read "downloading stage2.img". The message was: "Not enough space in /boot/upgrade to cache stage2.img" "It will be downloaded once the installer starts."
Comment 6 Will Woods 2008-06-05 14:05:30 EDT
No, that's a different problem. Note that Han-Wen said "boot into upgrade". There *is* a progress bar while you download stage2.img in preupgrade. There isn't one in anaconda's stage1.
