linux on max problem
Well, I have gotten a lot farther than I was before. I actually got to the
part of loading the base debian.
This is a Quarda 700 with 20mb ram and 2 HDD. The first is 80mb with MacOS
on it and the second is 160mb with 120mb root&usr partition and 46mb swap.
As I said I am all the way to the point of extracting the base debs from
the basedebs.tar file. The problem is that it has been on that dialog for
about an hour now. Is this normal? I know it is a slow machine, but should
it really take this long to extract?
If this is typical, can someone tell me how long IS too long? How long
should I give it before I figure something is wrong? If something is wrong,
what do I do about it?
Thanks a bunch,
