Coming from bug 209036 I can add that I was able to install in graphics mode
instead of text mode using xdriver=vesa because of the mga-driver problem. I did
not select the inn package which caused the hangs I experienced with two
previous text installs.
I don't know if inn was causing the excess 98% usage for anaconda, but it is the
tickler package unless it failed at installing the package after inn was
If I recall, inn was displayed in the text installer at less than 100% installed.
In my case, both times the packages showed 100% installed... Maybe it's
scriptlets in my case? I'm guessing that big packages like glibc and kde would
both have at least one scriptlet at the end of installing the RPM...
Put a workaround into anaconda that should hopefully make this less likely to be
Just out of curiosity, what was it?
