Description Hans de Goede 2006-11-17 16:28:17 UTC
I've recently been working with Fedora on some small disk systems (via epia with
flashdisks) and every MB counts when installing these, thus I noticed that
anaconda (text mode) transfered the image to the HD, which isn't necessary when
installing from DVD, as no diskchanges are needed then.

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-11-28 17:54:54 UTC
We used to check this and only do it as needed; agreed that we should go back to
that for the next release.

Comment 2 Jon Stanley 2008-04-23 20:30:02 UTC
Adding FutureFeature keyword to RFE's.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2008-08-27 18:49:56 UTC
This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
