Description Matthias Clasen 2006-04-04 10:22:02 EDT
If I do a fresh install and don't tweak the selected packages manually,
why does anaconda make me wait several minutes on the dependency check ?
Those dependencies should all be pre-computed, no ? Ie the package sets
"Office" "Development", etc should all be closed under dependencies...
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-10 12:50:39 EDT
No, the package sets are just defined as the leaf nodes that are considered
"interesting".  Pre-computing out every dep makes things significantly worse (we
did so in Red Hat Linux 8.0), especially given multilib and the looming support
for having more than one repository available.
