What package set had you selected to install?
Comment 2 Daryll 2002-08-22 12:55:32 EDT
It was a lot of stuff, about 3500 MB. As far as I could tell the speed was
consistently slow. No particular item got stuck. Of course, I didn't watch it
the entire 3 hours. :)
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-22 15:40:18 EDT
We've seen some systems go slower than others.

I use Intel EtherExpress 100 cards and a 4 GB install on a 750 MHZ Duron takes
a little over an hour on our network here.

Arjan you know of any nfs/nic issues with the null kernel?
Comment 4 Daryll 2002-08-24 15:49:21 EDT
I did a full install on this same laptop. 2222 MB of stuff took 45 minutes. So
it appears the upgrade was a lot slower than a regular install.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
