Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11999
installer does not give activity notification
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
when the installer is working, it sometimes gives users little notification
that it is actually working and did not freeze.
eg. while fdisking, formating, or running "post install" steps.
if a progress meter is not possible, place a spinning logo (ie. IE's
spinning glob, netscape's comets throbber) to let the user know when work
is being done. Some notification should be done ANY time the installer is
not waiting for user input, as the installer may crash at ANY time during
this issue has been added to the feature request list ... thanks for your input!
