Having just gotten back into working with LFS on my new (refurb) dual-core
Turion lappy, I thought I'd really like the progress bar, until it hit
100%, wrapped around & started over. That's when I figured out (correct me
if I'm wrong) that it doesn't show the status of the package being built,
it's just a graphical second count-off timer... am I right?
That being the case, I like having the time roll to show how long it's been
working on a particular package, but if the progress bar doesn't show the
actual progress of the package, it's just fluff to me.
Just IMHO from the village idiot... ;-)
