Description of problem:
I thought the possibility of doing a fresh install with updated packages would be a really good idea. Perhaps this could be implemented using a method, where all up-to-date packages a grabbed from selected installation media and newer packages are grabbed from an update repository (either one of the default mirrors or a specified repository). Dependencies should resolve just fine in scenarios like this.
Alternatively, an "update after installation" option could be an easier implementation of a similar functionality!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. during install, notice that there is no way to install a completely updated system
Actual Results: not possible
Expected Results: should be possible
Currently, you get updates in firstboot after you've rebooted from the
installer. In the future, we're planning to switching to use yum as the backend
for all package operations in the installer at which point this will become more
If yum is becoming package handling backend, then i agree it make sense to push
something like this to a later date. Thanks!
