Description David Timms 2007-04-28 07:42:59 EDT
Description of problem:
When upgrading, the UI shows say 700/700 packages complete, and then statys that
way for more than 13 minutes. To non-tech user, this appears to be a crash or
hang, and they may press reboot / power off to fix the "crash". Hour-glass mouse
cursor is not enough !

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fc6 {up2date 2007-04-20} -> f7test4 pxeboot+ftp

How reproducible:
l8r

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade
2. package 700/700 completes
  
Actual results:
bar graph is a few pixels from complete, the mouse activity thingy is spinning
but it seems like nothing is happening for a long time.
Eventually the "congratulations the installation is complete" message is shown,
as expected.

Expected results:
Adjust the UI to consider the total number of transactions to be done, and
divide the progress bar into this number of parts.

Even better: show the expected time until completion {over estimate rather than
under estimate}.
Better again: "Fedora will be ready to serve you in: 6min 45 seconds".
The maximum time between status updates should be low eg 1 second.

Additional info:
As I understand it, the progress bar shows progress through the package
installs, but not the package removes that are required in an upgrade; these
actually take some time to complete.

We're not taking into account cleanups with the progress display; we should
really fix this for F7
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-30 18:41:37 EDT
Integrating into the progress bar is going to be a little disruptive, but fixed
so we at least pop up something up to say that it may be a little bit
