Lots of progress scores logged to syslog during post-upgrade package install



  • After upgrading, the system installs/reinstalls all the packages. During that time lots of %age download figures are logged individually, like:

    Oct 21 15:07:49 	kernel:
    Oct 21 15:07:54 	kernel: 1%
    Oct 21 15:07:56 	kernel:  2%
    Oct 21 15:07:57 	kernel:  3%
    Oct 21 15:07:59 	kernel:  4%
    Oct 21 15:08:00 	kernel:  5%
    Oct 21 15:08:01 	kernel:  6%
    Oct 21 15:08:02 	kernel:  7%
    Oct 21 15:08:03 	kernel:  8%
    Oct 21 15:08:05 	kernel:  9%
    Oct 21 15:08:06 	kernel:  10%
    Oct 21 15:08:14 	kernel:  20%
    Oct 21 15:08:33 	kernel:  30%
    Oct 21 15:08:39 	kernel:  40%
    Oct 21 15:08:45 	kernel:  50%
    Oct 21 15:09:04 	kernel:  60%
    Oct 21 15:09:12 	kernel:  70%
    Oct 21 15:09:16 	kernel:  80%
    Oct 21 15:09:25 	kernel:  90%
    Oct 21 15:09:32 	kernel:  100%
    
    

    Did that used to happen on 2.1.n also?
    Anyway, it is spamming syslog - it should be enough just log the various packages as they start and end install, like it also does:

    Oct 21 15:07:43 	php: rc.bootup: Reinstalling package OpenVPN Client Export Utility
    Oct 21 15:07:45 	php: rc.bootup: Beginning package installation for OpenVPN Client Export Utility .
    
    

    and so on.
