urpmi --auto-update brings this 3.6 GHz quad core machine with 4G RAM and 7200RPM drives to it's fracking knees.
I read some msg traffic from January about fsync on every file being the default and how that may/may not cause issues...
But this is insanely slow, running win7 on a 386-in-qemu slow....
the machine is basically thrashing the HD and is unusable if urpmi is running updates.
The machine flys running 2010-2.
It runs pretty darn good and looks great running cooker as long as I'm not doing anything with RPM.
(video slow--seems not to have working xv etc on the nvidia driver,(videos are slideshows) but I haven't investigated that.)
Is there a fix in the works for RPM?
