Super Slow Software Installs
I have encountered this twice now while installing software with the make install command. First off, I downloaded Konstruct to update my KDE to 3.3. I did all the procedural things properly, but once I began the "make install" it took over two hours to finish.
Secondly, I had to download Qt 3 to satisfy the KDE installation, and again, same thing; after "make install" it has been 2 hours plus (as I'm typing this) and it still hasn't finished installing. No error messages or anything, the software is installing correctly, but it's just taking forever. When I run urpmi, I have absolutely no problems at all. Everything installs fairly quickly, but when I have to do the tarball thing, I'm sitting here for hours watching the terminal. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
