(1) Slowness. After the setup initial steps and pointing
to the local install location, I get to the following display
for 10s of minutes to hours (see log excerpt farther down).
It eventually goes to the next step. There is a very
low, steady network traffic during the delay. This
storage and network is usually fast for other things,
including during actual package installs.
You might want to checkout the '-m --mirror-mode' option to setup.
