OpenSuse 10.3 and Liferay

Hello all, I recently moved from opensuse 11 to opensuse 10.3 because we have some software not tested in opensuse 11 yet, and I have experienced some problems whith liferay when deploying portlets in this old version. Deploying takes too long, like 7 minutes, when it only took 1 or 2 minutes in version 11. Has anyone experienced the same problem? thanks!!
