YaST Software Manager - Installation after download

Feature state

openSUSE-11.4
Unconfirmed

Description

Once a package install/system update has begun in Software Manager it's not very easy to stop it. The 'Abort' button doesn't really seem to work and if you force kill the process, you likely end up with broken packages.

It would be nice if first all the packages were downloaded, and then installed (like it is in Ubuntu), rather than the sequence of: Download Package 1, install package 1, download package 2, install package 2 and so on. That way the installation could be aborted safely during the downloading part with no fear of broken packages.

Hi,

forums.opensuse.org

Agree about the Abort. Press Abort in the middle of a large download and it doesn't "abort" until the download is finished.

yes and if there is a power outage while installing (not unlikely in my location) ..... or you force kill the YaST process .. BAM now you have to spend time reinstalling broken packages.

Even though it is possible to manually configure zypper to download first and then install, I think it would be less daunting for new users if a GUI option was made for it.
