Description Bill Soudan 2001-01-18 23:35:19 EST
While waiting for up2date to download the available headers, the gnome GUI
blocks without providing any progress information.  I thought the
application had hung completely - only once I did a bit of research here in
bugzilla did I find out about the /var/spool/up2date directory.  Now I can
see (though repeated du -sk . commands) that it IS in fact downloading
information.  To put things into perspective, I started the process
approximately 5 minutes ago, it's still downloading, and I even have a
reasonably fast connection (cable modem).

Ah, forgot to include versions:

/var/spool/up2date! rpm -qa | grep up2date
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2001-02-08 00:02:44 EST
The next version of up2date will be much quicker about downloading
headers, and will also have more agressive caching of headers,
so hopefully this wont be a problem.
