Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-24 15:33:06 EDT
When I saw the space needed for an upgrade on a machine with a 500mb hd I
decided to first of all take a look at what was installed and what the
installer made up like gnome, GRRRR the entire beta team has been bitching
about this for ages, why why ooh why ?(Will be entered as a seperate BUG)

So I aborted the installer at the select pacakges screen and when I
returned to my old install, the rpm database was rebuild so I couldn't find
out what was installed?!

This is not good, one should be able to abort an upgrade up onto the ready
to upgrade screen.

What was good is that a second upgrade didn't barf on the database already
being rebuild but just went ahead.
