Description Steve Murphy 2008-01-15 00:45:07 EST
Description of problem:

Downloaded the FC8 i386 DVD iso, burned it and checked it on a DVD.
Booted from it on a system running FC7, in order to upgrade to FC8.
The FC7 has been recently updated via "yum update", rebooted, etc., and seems 
in good working order.

The Installation process went fine, and got up to the "... detected the GRUB
boot loader currently installed on /dev/sda.", at which point, I left the
"Update boot loader configuration" selected, and clicked on "Next".

A popup or two and I have a popup "Checking dependencies in packages selected
for installation". A bar slowly progresses from left to right. It pretty much
reaches the right end after a couple of hours, and then halts. The cursor is an
hourglass. The system seems quiescent, the cursor still responds to the mouse,
but that's about it. I let it go all Sunday until Monday morning, and I powered
the system down, and then tried it again Monday evening, and it seems to follow
the same pattern.

I do have a lot of packages, but it shouldn't take like 20+ hours to check
dependencies, right?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Whatever version ships on the FC8 install dvd

How reproducible:
