Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-02 23:08:46 UTC
Well known issue.

Not clear how to improve at this point.  Things like running ldconfig after alot
of package installations take more and more time as install progresses.

Comment 2 Miloslav Trmac 2003-01-09 19:13:29 UTC
Another data point: At the very start, the estimate is ~16 minutes.
After glibc-common is installed, it is reduced to only 2 minutes,
presumably because glibc-common actually installs much less than
the 186 MB of all locales.
