Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 140819
Anaconda incorrectly displays the RPMs sizes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:55 EST
Description of problem:
While (graphical) installing FC3, the RPMS sizes are displayed
For ex: openoffice-i18n-....RPM actually 111MB, but (in Graphical
Install), anaconda displays as 632MB. The same thing appears to most
of the pakcages (like, kdelibs, gnome-games, etc)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just install the FC3 on i686 m/c. While it asking the 2nd CD look
for the openoffice-i18n RPM size. It displays (632MB). goto 2nd
Virtual Screen and type the following command.
ll -h /mnt/source/Fedora/RPMS/open*.rpm
It is not in FC3 test3 but in FC3 Release. I hope FC3 test3 also have
the same issue.
The size of the package file on disk is not the same as the size of
the package when it's uncompressed and on the filesystem. We show the
latter as it's more useful to know.
