Hello all -
I know Pirut is famous for being a little slower than Synaptic as a front end, that Yum is slower than apt, etc. I'm not trying to restart the debate or flame war over them... I'm really looking for help.
The slight slowness in Pirut never really used to bother me... I love that it just works!
However, as of late... its gotten MUCH, MUCH slower. Like right now, I'm working on installing 8 updates... for the last hour and a half. The window doesn't refresh, even things like cleanups take a long time.
This happens when installing RPM packages as well. I don't get any kind of specific error or anything like that... but when running Pirut, my Athlon 1800 feels like a 386!
What I'm wondering if this is just a progressive problem the more packages you have on your system, and if this is why people complain so much about Pirut, or if I really have a problem and this is unusually slow.
