Re: Fedora 6 a bit more automated install



Hi,

Yes it is the depsolve that takes a long time, annoying really.

One way I think it could be solved is before depsolve have
a checkbox, possibly intergrated into one of the existing
screens:

"Start installing to disk automatically after solving dependecies
after 60 (editable?) seconds?

which is checked OFF by default but since I know what I am
doing I can check it on and hence in this case when the timeout
happens the user does not have to click the "Next" button and
install to disk happens automatically BUT is still able to cancel
within the timeout period. In the case depsolve fails then the
usual error handling happens.

Thanks
Shams
