Description Muthu Mohan.T 2004-11-25 01:42:45 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):

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:
Displays 632MB.

Expected results:
Display 111MB.

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.
