it does the packages in abc order, but if it's inbetween packages you can't really tell because you can't see the names of what's being installed from what package at the same time. you may see the package name up for one second and then it installs everything in that package.

Perhaps you could open another console (alt-F2) and then use bash> tail - f /var/something-or-other

Just not quite sure what that something or other would be ....?
