Post by Paul75 » Thu Apr 16, 2009 12:20

Hello,

I would like to know if any software installation always long? I mean it should compile and install what put me to install 10 package, about 3 hours? There is a way to have the program installed faster?

Thanks

Installation on sabayon is a little bit slower than Debian or Ubuntu, but 3 hours for 10 packages is much slower than normal for Sabayon. Did you use equo? How fast is your connection? What packages did you install?

If you compile it will take time, if you use binary it wont take long

Okay ;) sorry for this post but I am new.

But it is normal that the sytem take 8go of disk ? I test it into virtualbox first...
Because another distribution take only 3go ...
