Installer problem: very slow

Postby Zasta » Mon Mar 25, 2013 23:59

Hi, I choose to try Sabayon after 7 years of Pclinuxos. But I'm not a expert user yet.

I downloaded the Sabayon 11 x86 Xfce version.

The live desktop is all ok (I'm writing from here now), but when I start the Installer Program there's a problem: after the double click the program start after 4 minutes more or less. Every step require a lot of time to go to the next step. For the disks search it take like 10 minutes. And after the partitioning there's a unespected problem (i don't remeber exactly the type, but I reached this after 8 hours of installation and I was very tired).

Someone can help me?

My computer is:
- AMD Athlon 2800+
- 2Gb Ram
- HD320 Gb
- GPU Nvidia Geforce2 64Mb

Thanks in advance

Slow install happened to me time ago on an old PC: I discovered then that RAM was damaged.
Or maybe your is a problem related to a bad/old DVD drive!

Ok, I found it. In the start process there was a problem during the "waiting uevents to be processed" step. After 60s cannot loa d nvidia module. I disassemble my video card (Abit Siluro T400 with Geforce2 MX GPU) and I started to use the integrated video card and now is all ok. Obviosly without 3D support.
Now I must find another compatible video card.
Ciao!!!

Whoa! Old farts still amuse me!
After RAM and slow drives, I now discovered that also the GPU can cause troubles! :eye:
