[openFATE 323431] Allow web browsing during installation
Feature changed by: Tomáš Chvátal (scarabeus_iv)
Feature #323431, revision 6
Title: Allow web browsing during installation

- openSUSE Distribution: New
+ openSUSE Distribution: Rejected by Tomáš Chvátal (scarabeus_iv)
+ reject reason: It is not feasible to allow this. You would have to have
+ full window manager (now yast installer steals the focus) and then you
+ would have to keep the browser on the media and respin the media
+ everytime there is security issue (because otherwise user uses the
+ browser with all exploits that were fixed since the release...)
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Paul Dufresne (dufrp)
Partner organization:

The installer should have a tab or a window where someone could browse
the web during installation of packages.

- To play Rammstein's samples on installation process (feature/id:

Business case (Partner benefit): Installation, particularly net installation can be boring
because there is not much to do.
After an hour watching packages installing, or even before for some,
one would wish to do something else, but there is nothing else than
watching packages being installed that is available.
I believe being able to browse the web during installation would make
the life of many people more pleasant.
