Pinned topic p-AVE 0.4.2 installation time

‏2007-04-25T13:06:13Z |
I am doing a p-AVE installation with RedHat 4.4 and Full x86 and the installer script is taking approximately 65 minutes to do step 2 of the creation of x86world. I am using an uncapped LPAR with 2.0 entitled capacity of 2.3GHz POWER5+ processors. RAM is 1GB and I see no swapping and average use of only 1 cpu during that time. Is that normal? Why is this phase of the installer.pl scrip so long?

    Hi,

    For full installation installer.pl installs about 800 rpms. The delay in this step is expected.

    By the way, did you try RC4 ... this is available for download from the pAVE Open Beta website at:
    http://www-304.ibm.com/jct09002c/partnerworld/wps/pub/systems/p/technical/pave and then select beta.

    best regards,
    Kaiser
