Installation of software is slow this morning

Postby gman on Sat Jun 30, 2007 11:12 am

Installation of software through Synaptic, Automatix and update manager is slow this morning 6/30/07 (10:00 AM USA CST). Anyone else experiencing this?

Not the Internet. Everything else worked at normal speed. Downloads form other web sites were as usual. It was only when installing from Synaptic/mint install/automatix that my speed was slow.

Same thing this morning 5:15 AM CST. Internet and other sites work fine, Synaptic/mint install/automatix slow.

If it were simply Synaptic/automatix I could attribute that to Ubuntu or Automatic servers. But it is also Mint Install that is slow.

Thanks for sharing those observations and for these details. OK, then maybe the Mint servers were under heavy load? I think you should talk to clem ... you can reach him e.g. via a personal message. Thanks.

You seem to be in the US - the Mint related servers are in the EU and time here is 11:15 (or 12:15) and it can get busy
Don't know for automatix and I'm not quite sure where the Ubuntu servers are but I think in Europe
