Today for the fun of it I decided to try installing RC1 on VMware running in Win2K. (very bored today). Everything goes fine until the ports installation. I choose all the default options, I have it running in a 256mb of RAM 10gb virtual disk environment. Like I said up until the ports installation everything goes as expected. Then when it gets to unpacking the ports collection the rate goes down from about 1mb/sec for the other packages and it's now still installing at 1.5kb/sec. This is the first time I've tried installing RC1, I installed DP2 on a laptop and it went smooth. Has anyone else experienced this or is this related to running it in a VM environment.
What seems odd to me is that CPU utilization for the VMware process is at 99% constantly. I'm wondering what it's doing because it isn't copying over ports very fast. Ryan PS I know this isn't the way it's meant to be run, I'm just curious why the rest would install fine until ports. (This is the second time I've tried.) -- Ryan "leadZERO" Sommers [EMAIL PROTECTED] ICQ: 1019590 AIM/MSN: leadZERO To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
