install time

Post by kamu » Tue Feb 25, 2020 8:10

Last night i spent nearly 3 hours to install sabayon xfce daily build but gave up as it was past midnight does it always take such a longtime to install,i am going to try again this morning but it could put users of when you can install most distros in under 30 minutes.
Sorry not a big criticism from the live boot it looks like it will run really well once i get it installed,.

Hi.
Sabayon keeps ~30minutes to install on HDD .
We can't know your problems during installations without any infos.

Anyway I'm going to install latest Xfce daily build on my laptop to test . (build 24-Feb-2020 06:25 )

Mmmm , quite old CPU , 1 thread/CPU only.
this could take a while to unpack the live system
On a multicore system , SL (Mate) was installed less than 25 minutes.

Maybe an old laptop but once installed runs fine. I can even watch movies through the browser and Youtube runs fine as well

This required a few read/write disk operations
Unpacking the filesystem required a lot of CPU load and RAM utlization

PS : I'm installing SL-Xfce on VM (4 core,4Gb RAM) and it take ~36 minutes
