I have just tried to install Lyx 2.1 on my Windows 7 PC on which I
already had Lyx 2.0.6 and TexLive 2013, so I went the update way.
During configuration, Lyx runs LuaLatex which in turn gets stuck and
start bloating and eating all the resources. I tried killing the
script (python.exe). Lyx starts telling me that there were no classes
installed. I tried reconfigure, but had the same result.
Has somebody had this problem?
For some reason, the lualatex configuratoin check takes a very long
time. I don't know why it would cause such huge problems, but if you
want to work around this:
1. Find the configure.py script on your system. It should be in your LyX
system (library) directory, which you can find from Help> About LyX.
2. Open the file and find the checkLuatex() routine.
3. At the very beginning of that routine, put: return, to skip the rest.
Make sure the indentation is right, as python cares about that. A lot.
