Package Installation never reaches 100%


I recently installed Suse 11.1 as the only OS on my laptop.
When I install a package the “Package Installation” status bar remains at 0% through the install. I have to assume that the package is installed when the mouse courser changes back to normal from busy, at which point I have to click “Abort” to exit out of the installer. Installed packages work however! Any idea what may be causing this?
