Is it possible to configure Zypper to order downloads based on the package file size?
I would like to configure zypper to order the packages from largest to smallest and have it download in this order. I know it will not actually make the download process faster but it would provide the illusion of it speeding up based on the number of remaining packages. I think this would be nice for example when you are installing 200+ packages like I am today. I also think it would be useful if for some reason the update / distribution upgrade is interrupted as it would have already downloaded all packages larger than the ones remaining.
I am going to request this a a new feature for future versions of openSUSE!
