Is there a package manager that during installation/update will already start installing first fetched packages whlie other packages are still being downloaded?
Example made up scenario:
Chromium depends on libwebkit.
Normally when a user runs
apt-get install chromium apt will fetch the small in size
libwebkit.deb library and then still wait for
chromium.deb to be fetched. This is simply a waste of time especially during big system updates.
Instead this scenario is much more reasonable:
libwebkit.deb and as soon as
libwebkit.deb is downloaded it proceeds with installing it without waiting for
chromium.deb to be fully fetched,
chromium.deb at the same time is being fetched in the background.
chromium.deb has finished downloading apt-get can proceed with its installation immediately without waiting for libwebkit to install as libwebkit was already installed during the fetching of
