Description Marcel Ribeiro Dantas 2013-07-07 07:41:19 UTC
Description of problem:
At some point during the installation, the % of software installation is about 84% but then it comes down to 83% and then it gets unstable between 83 and 84%, 85% going up and down.

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

How reproducible:
I used the F19 Live Desktop DVD. I erased some space in my HD and used this to be the space for my installation (both swap/boot/home//). It was all made with Anaconda.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Anaconda to Clean some space
2. Use it to install F19
3. Install F19

Actual results:

Expected results:
% going from 0 to 100, without going in the opposite direction.

I believe I reproduced this in a VM. The reversals are very brief, so you have to watch closely. Overall, the percentage increases more or less steadily from 0% to 100%.


Create an empty disk image:
$ qemu-img create f19-test-1.img 12G

Start the installer from the Live image:
$ qemu-kvm -m 4096 -hda f19-test-1.img -cdrom ~/xfr/fedora/F19/Fedora-Live-Desktop-x86_64-19-1.iso -vga std -boot menu=on

Select default disk partitioning.
Start the install.
Do not set a root password or create a user account.

Watch the "Installing software" percentage.
The percentage sometimes decreases by one or two and then begins increasing again.
