Flowchart

Anaconda-postup1-flowchart.jpg

  • Put preupgrade here?
  • Need to explain difference between upgrade & preupgrade

Welcome and Language

Anaconda-postup1-welcome.jpg

  • Can we use geo-location to suggest languages?
    • We won't have a network connection this early, so it would be pretty difficult, wouldn't it? But we need to ask language up front so the user can read and understand the installer itself. --Duffy 18:46, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Can language, keyboard, and time zone be a single screen?
    • That's a lot of information for one screen. It would be a really tight fit. We're trying to model these after the GNOME upstream dialogs so that whether or not the user configures something in the installer or on the desktop, they have a similar experience and don't have too much trouble working with varying dialogs.
