Anaconda installer issues, slow..
Of all installers I've had some experience with so far I think I'd rate the Anaconda pretty low. It does look good as a GUI installer and is fairly easy to use, but some of the intermediary steps are just too slow such as when it reads the package list or checks dependancies.
I've encountered Anaconda while trying to install Fedora Core 5 and the latest Foresight. In both, these intermediary steps are so slow that you start wondering if the computer froze up. The only indicator of activity is a busy cursor, but it's hard to put much trust in that (it can display a busy and even animated cursor even if the installation froze up). It didn't actually freeze up, but for a few minutes there you can easily get that feeling while waiting so much.
I've had least luck with Foresight where just when it was supposed to start installing packages it gave me an error about not being able to assign memory.
Is it just my luck or is Anaconda really a bit buggy and slow? What is anyone elses experience with it?
