1 week to download?????

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 02, 2007 12:31 AM
One week is 604800 seconds. At 256 Kbps, that's 154,828,800 Kbits or about 15,500,000 KB allowing 10 bits per byte (for overhead) or about 15 GB!

I've never had the total download of all installed packages be over 2GB. You could check yours by checking the<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/usr/portage/distfiles directory. This is where they all go.

At 256 Kbps, it should take no more than a day to download everything you need.
