Description Matthew Callaway 2003-12-16 14:15:47 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
The netstg2.img is 12 MB.  It takes a while to download this file,
even with broadband connections.  It would be nice to have a progress
meter.  Currently, it is easy to think that the install simply failed,
or hung, as the file is transferred to a file descriptor.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda: core 1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start net install
2. Select a mirror
3. Watch the "retrieving netstg2.img" portion

Hi, any progress on this feature? It is a kind of annoy for users in places like
China, because there is usually no fast ftp/http mirror to use. It took
something like half of hour to download stage2.img file. Without any progress
information, those users are suffering from bad user experiences.
