Warn users in anaconda that they're about to install a slow debug build
Last modified: 2012-03-12 15:13:15 EDT
Description of problem:
People install pre-releases or rawhide and have slow systems due to debug builds of the kernel etc. A lot of time is wasted since people might think the slowdown is normal, or on trying to find the cause of the slowdown.
A very slow runtime.
It would be great if there was a warning, similar to the one at the beginning of an anaconda installation that says "This is a pre-release ...", that informed the user that it's a debug build and will have a great impact on performance.
pre-release is usually synonymous with debug builds.
It's not intuitive that it will be a debug build and many people waste time on forums too trying to debug performance problems.
