Description John Mellor 2003-01-25 02:13:34 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030115

Description of problem:
The estimated install time should remain fairly constant after a few packages
have been installed, and fairly accurately reflect the estimated installation time.

In the observed case, the installation estimated time for 618 packages ballooned
from an initial 13 minutes to just under 35 minutes.  The estimation code is
obviously broken.

Possible unhandled calculation factors: 1GHz athlon, 512MB pc133 SDRAM, 4GB ATA
disk with slow transfer rate of ~3MB/s (per hdparm timings), 56xCDRW.  Also
noted that postinstall script runtimes incorrectly do not seem to be factored
into the calculation.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install product

Actual Results:  Product correctly installed in over twice the calculated time

Expected Results:  Actual install time should closely match the expected time.
