Default F13 install timings

I don't know if it is too early to do install timings (due to debugging
be on in the kernel, elsewhere?) but here are the longest steps from a
fairly stripped down kickstart server install of about 389 packages:

F-13:

enablefilesystems 3:10s
postselection 24:27s
installpackages 14:30s

F-12:

enablefilesystems 2:50s
postselection 36:45s
installpackages 11:36s (probably had more packages in our local cache)

The install spends a long time displaying "Checking dependencies in
packages selected for installation" with no movement of the progress bar.

Any way this could get sped up more (good job going from 36m to 24m) and
progress shown?

Interestingly a much larger install set on a laptop took only 1:34s in
postselection.

Are you sure that the optical drive on the server is OK? Those times for
postselection (tens of minutes) smell like slow hardware [microcode]
recovery for seek errors.

Transfer the DVD to a USB2.0 flash memory device, boot the netinstall CD
with extra parameter 'askmethod', choose local harddrive, and select the
flash memory partition as the source of the Fedora 13 tree. Postselection
should take less than one minute.

It's an http install to a local server, and there is no access during
that stage (after is has all of the repodata files) until it starts
fetching package headers. So, it seems like filing a bug is in order.
Anaconda or yum?

Anaconda, the program that you invoked. If anaconda can pass the
blame along to yum, then I'm sure that they will :-)

My kickstart installs used to sit showing that for ages; I ended up
using pungi -G to gather an install set of just what I have in the
kickstart file. This seems to make things run much, much faster,
although I've never worked on figuring out why.
