Description of problem:
The total and remainding times are too low in anaconda at the beginning of the
package installation process.

I only try installation from cd-rom.

Example :
fists extimations : 4 min.
final time : 10 min.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Phoebe

Actual Results:  Estimate time too low.

Expected Results:  Better estimated time.

Additional info:

There is the same problem in RH8.0.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-02 23:08:46 UTC
Well known issue.

Not clear how to improve at this point.  Things like running ldconfig after alot
of package installations take more and more time as install progresses.

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmac 2003-01-09 19:13:29 UTC
Another data point: At the very start, the estimate is ~16 minutes.
After glibc-common is installed, it is reduced to only 2 minutes,
presumably because glibc-common actually installs much less than
the 186 MB of all locales.
