Hey guys: I started at 6:30 am on the wubi install. I have had Ubuntu 8.40 before. I am installing the latest version now. It is taking over 3 hrs? Is this normal? Thanks

upgrading or installing new?

Upgrading can take excessive amounts of time depending on dependancies and the amount of files needed to be downloaded for your install.

Installing new can take that long as well just make sure that you are making progress. depending on the speed of you're PC and how much you've told the installer to do.

It would take a long time if it had to download the iso, I believe that there is an option to use the source files on the CD which will reduce the time significantly.

Alan.

Thanks Niggles, I am beginning with a new install, and I just built this new pc. I uninstalled the first try, and the second was a success. Hope you all are fine in Linux land, I enjoy learning the commands at the terminal, is there a Glossary of common commands for Ibex or I should say Linux, thanks in advance,Alan

Thanks niggles, now My Vista boots fast, I cant get to Ibex, the first couple times I'd get the Mainboard screen and be given a choice of which system to boot, then I got a blocked start up program screen and I guess I didn't handle that well. Now I only boot Vista really fast, I cant even press Del quick enough to access bios?

There should be a setting in vista to delay the start up time slightly. It should be found by right clicking on My Computer and selecting properties.

Alan.

There should be two boxes..

Time to display list of operating systems.
Time to display recovery options when needed.


How long is the Operating systems section.
Regards,

Alan.

I found that the Ubuntu install slowed down when it reached the "scanning the mirror' section of installation.
If the servers are busy, this can cause the slowdown. If you're impatient, just disconnect your cable from the internet and continue.

It was 10 seconds, now I reduced it to 8 seconds, but I still have problems with Vista fighting Ibex ?? I 'll try this again and update you again.

go the other direction, if you increase the time the list should stay up longer. ie change it to 20 seconds
