System: NetBSD antifer.ipv6.lip6.fr 1.3.2 NetBSD 1.3.2 (ANTIFER) #0: Wed Jun 10 15:49:04 MEST 1998 firstname.lastname@example.org:/emul/linux/share/NetBSD/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/ANTIFER i386
When doing an install from ftp, sysinst first download the selected
sets, and then ask if we want to see the files names while they are
extracted before extracting them.
These 2 actions may take some time, so the user may want to go
do something else. It would be better if it asked this before
starting the download, so that sysinst can download and
extract the sets without user intervention.
Install NetBSD 1.3.2 on a slow machine. Go drink a cup of coffe while
it is downloading the sets. When you come back, figure out that it
could have extracted them while you were away, instead of stupidly
wainting for 'yes' or 'no' (who cares if it prints the files or not
while extracting the sets, if there's nobody in front of the screen
while it is doing it ? :)
None supplied, but should be quite easy to do.
