Description Shlomi Fish 2020-03-08 15:05:33 UTC
Description of problem:

dnf is very slow on one of my computers - both in a virtualbox rawhide VM and on the mageia v8 host. It takes about  20 seconds to install a single small .rpm which accummulates to 10s of minutes for 700 updates. It is not a networking issue because i have a fast and reliable network connection of 100 megabits/second and the packages get downloaded quickly.

A manjaro linux vbox vm on the same host installs updates quickly and on a different intel nuc host on the same home network, where i have fedora 31 x64 installed DNF is very fast.

I wish to find the "magic incantation" so to speak that will make dnf fast on the problematic box.

My system hardware is:

My primary machine is a desktop machine with a:

    An Intel Core i3 CPU (x86-64).
    8 GB of RAM.
    Intel Corporation Sandy Bridge Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    A 2 TB hard-disk.
    A 21″ Wide LCD Screen by LG.
    Intel Corporation Cougar Point High Definition Audio Controller.
    Intel Corporation 82579V Gigabit Network Connection.


I can provide more info. I should note that in the past, bzr was slow on my box so it may be related: https://shlomif-tech.livejournal.com/41922.html .

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
