Description R P Herrold 2001-02-11 21:43:40 EST
mkfs produces a text progress indicator which is converted by anaconda to a
bar indicator ... 

The 4th install has been formatting a 1.2 G SCSI / for the
last half hour -- I am nervous enough that I will not switch
VC;s to see if it is hung .-- See 27106 for reason ..
Comment 1 R P Herrold 2001-04-10 23:50:09 EDT
Re-open for consideration of proposed RFE in RH 7.2
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-06-27 15:12:31 EDT
The progress bar works better in CVS.
