Description n0dalus 2005-11-27 10:24:13 UTC
Description of problem:
In FC5t1, during graphical installation, after selecting the package groups; a
dialogue appears stating 'Checking dependencies in packages selected for
Installation...' with an accompanying progress indicator.
This indicator starts off at around 10%, and does nothing until it's finished
several minutes later (when it jumps straight to 100%). This makes the installer
seem slow.

How reproducible:
Haven't tested on other systems, but happened all 3 times I installed on this one.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installing FC5t1
2. Select packages
3. Click Next
4. Watch progress
Actual results:
Progress indicator (after several minutes) jumps from ~10% to 100%.

Expected results:
Progress indicator smoothly moves from 0% to 100% during the few minutes to give
the impression that the installation is working.

Yes, we're well aware of things like this needing doing.  Just a matter of
getting to them now that the funcationality is working again
