I am currently running a large number of Fedora 11 desktops machines for a software development company. I tried upgrading to F12 when it first came out and have since tried upgrading to F13 and now F14 and am having the same issue with all the later versions.
The issue is that processes that took about 40 minutes on F11 take much longer on any version after F12. Using the default partition for the disk setup the time blows out to about 120 minutes. If I modify the fstype to be ext3 instead of the default ext4 then the time reduces to about 50 minutes but it is still longer than what it was on F11.
With a large number od developers running this process multiple times a day this increase in time is unacceptable and preventing me from moving away from F11. We're using x86_64 version of fedora.
Does anyone have any ideas why this problem would occur. I'm using kickstart to automate the install and the partition section is as below;
part /boot --fstype=ext3 --size=200
part pv.01 --grow --size=1
volgroup vg_01 --pesize=4096 pv.01
logvol / --fstype=ext3 --name=lv_root --vgname=vg_01 --grow --size=1024
logvol swap --name=lv_swap --vgname=vg_01 --recommended
Any help would be appreciated as I am getting a lot of heat from my boss to move away from an unsupported version ie F11.
