Why is updating so slow? I’ve had problem with just the repositories taking time to autorefresh. I found an alternate URL for Packman that sped that up a lot. Still, when I let yast2 upgrade everything (or manually do it), I get a lot of very slow transfers AND many transfers that time out. I have to retry several times for some of them.
I’m configuring this particular system for some non-geek users that aren’t going to be very patient with this.
OK, I know it’s not the network connection on my end. I have high speed cable and Firefox, ftp, e-mail and everything else run very fast. It sure looks like the repositories are very slow themselves.
