Re: installation report on a Dell Inspiron 4000



I don't know why it does this, but it does it on mine too.  Just let it go
do it's thing and it will get through all it's mirrored sites it seems then
bring you the preferences list.

I also think you have to set in preferences where the default rpm dir is,
via cdrom or whereever.  Also have the cd in and either try to let it bring
up gnorpm on it's own or bring it up yourself.  Then see when you click on
install if it doesn't list all the packages you haven't installed yet.
