RPM installation progression bar !


Dear Friends ,

When I am going to install a RPM then it appears the below lines :

[root@server Server]# rpm -ivh system-switch-mail-*
warning: system-switch-mail-0.5.25-12.noarch.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 37017186
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:system-switch-mail ########################################### [ 50%]
2:system-switch-mail-gnom########################################### [100%]
[root@server Server]#


Would u plz tell me what are the meaning of "100%" and "50%" ? I guess (but not sure ) that it is a progression bar . But I dont understand why it shows 50 % ?

You have two programs to install; thus, when you have finished installing one rpm, you are 50% of the way through the task, when you've installed the second, you're 100% of the way through. If you have four programs to install, the steps would be 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%.
