Where did you get the installer from: sweetlou or ftp.mozilla.org?  Both places
appear to have the xpi directories populated.  I can't repro this with a
sweetlou build.

Can you repro this with a ftp.mozilla.org build?  How about a sweetlou build?

sweetlou installer is working for recommended setup type- failing with a
621error while installing java

mozilla.org installer is hanging on some downloads.
I do not see error messages in console but download process hangs for certain
installs. I was successful with a Navigator only, Nav and mail, nav,mail,spell
and qfa

Specifically what component does it claim it is downloading when itappears to
hang (it may be timing out on a non-existent xpi).  Thanks.

Is this reproducible with earlier builds from ftp.mozilla.org?
The java failure is because recent jre.xpi files are 858 bytes -- only an 
install script, no actual java. That's a build problem that should be filed as 
a separate bug.

I saw this error yesterday with the ftp.mozilla.org stub installer although it
appeared to install everything (didn't try the java).

I don't test sweetlou builds so I don't know what's happening there.  I do know
that the mozilla stub builds seemed fine to me all of last week.  I didn't test
it monday or tuesday (I don't think) and when I tried it today I got failures. 
After about 15 tries it finally did make the install (while I had my back
turned) Maybe it just didn't want to be watched ;)

hmm, I answered your query yesterday- didn't take!

It hangs on different components- I could not determine one - once I took 
out of the mix, I was able to install.

I don't usually test with stubs from ftp.mozilla.org- I do test with 
on Linux a few times a week.

adding K'Trina to cc list
upgrading to blocker as now installing with the full bits fails also.
Severity: critical → blocker
Keywords: smoketest
I'll reduce this back to critical, I was able to at least use the full bits to 
get a build loaded.
Severity: blocker → critical

What build?  From where are you downloading?  sweetlou or ftp.mozilla.org?  I
haven't changed anything in the download code.  Don't know why this is a
blocker.  Looking...
Tracy is seeing a different bug: jre.xpi and flash.xpi not installing. We will go 
mark those as commercial-only blockers.  He is able to successfully download the 
other bits though so the issue he is seeing is different than this.  (Samir on 
Tracy's computer.)  Removing smoketest keyword.

I see this with the 2001-06-06-21 build (from ftp.mozilla.org). The 

"Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkprogress.c: line 518
(gtk_progress_set_percentage): assertion `percentage >= 0 && percentage <= 1.0'

messages seem to come from the progress meter. It goes up to 100% and then
continous to download (that's when the error messages begin to appear).
Therefore beeing over 100% => assertion failes.

But I don't think it has anything to do with the bug that follows then: During
the installation I always get the error message that the installation of one xpi
failed, it doesn't tell which. The install.log says that browser.xpi didn't
succesfully install. It fails with error -202, is this a quota problem? If yes,
the installer should say so.

Oh, I forgot something. I tried to gunzip the installer and I tried to do tar
-xzf, both didn't work. tar -xf just worked fine. Shouldn't it therefor be *.tar
instead of *.tar.gz?
This has been triaged and claimed by Leaf in bug 84492.  Read that bug for
details.  Marking dupe.
