Description Huang Yu 2007-03-20 04:49:54 EDT
Description of problem:

When we install Fedora core 5/6, the last step is to decide whether or not 
selecting single software(s) by oneself.

  Now the problem is that if the free space of the hard disk partition
(/ or /usr) is not enough, then the next installint step will be forced to
stop. And then we must restart the computer and All we have done lost.

  I propose:
  1. Check the free space of user before real installation.
  2. Display the size of the single software when users select it, and
     the total size of the softwares having been selected.

Thanks you all,
By quxtilf,
From Guang Zhou, China.

anaconda in later releases will allow you to go back and modify your package
selections if we discover you do not have enough space to install everything. 
For adding the size information to the dialog, I'm reassigning this to pirut
(the software component we use for that screen).

Showing the size would require calculating dependencies at run-time which is
pretty expensive and leads to a poor (laggy) UI
