I have searched the forum for an explanation of a very slowly package update, which I found was coming in 11.4, without any luck. I don’t remember that earlier 11-distro was so slow.
I am doing a new 64-bit installation from a KDE LiveCD, which was downloaded and checked. After installation, an update is started (tried both the zypper- and Yast -> Online Update-way).
From zypper I can read, that download bitrate is between:
done (0 B/s) and up to done (900 B/s) ; not very much on my 1 Mbit/s adsl-line
Download of LiveCD.iso take about 20-30 min.
I have also done new 32-bit installations on other PC’s, with the same experience.
Sorry bad head line: “11.4 very slow package…”
