Re: causes for this?
Yeah, texlive is like 1 GB. I used it once about 10 years ago but I have it on every Debian or Raspbian machine. I wish there was more flexibility in dependencies somehow.

texlive @ 500 megs of stuff was not enough, and the texlive-xetex is
another 500 mags. Installing now. But the pi-3b is painfully slow at
installing all that. The spi bus that runs my machinery seems 100x
faster. 41 megabaud writes, 25 megabaud reads.
All this stuff is going into a 32 or 64 GB u-sd card. But I intend to
move the lcnc's nc_files to this SSD if it works to build a kernel as
that will take 90% of the write exercise off the u-sd.
Color depth of the video framebuffer needs help but I doubt if that will
ever happen given its current update speed. I'm getting used to the slow
screen updates. Under 10 frames a second, so what I see in the backplot
is always 1/4" behind the machine if its moving at any great speed. The
rock64 is easily 50x faster than a pi, but support for non-media
applications is non-existent. The mali gfx in the rock64 looks great in
the propaganda, but is only now getting some experimental support.
Despite all that, its still blindingly faster than the pi. But I can't
use it until the spi driver we have for the pi, has been ported to
the "pi like" gpio facilities the rock64 has. While I've written all
this, the pi has only 33% completed the texlive-xerex kit.

Need to get 344 MB of archives.
After this operation, 507 MB of additional disk space will be used.

Please $DIETY, deliver me from this bottleneck of getting data into an
u-sd card. Do it by making the rock64 usable. If nothing else, a pi with
an internal usb-3 port replaceing its internal usb-2 and 2-4GB of ram,
would be a huge leap in the right direction. Booting from e-MMC right on
the cpu bus would also be helpfull, but that internal usb2 port used for
everything but spi & wifi, has GOT to be replaced with something faster
as it barely makes usb-1.1 speeds.
pi is done, finally.
Next roadblock, make pdfdocs can't find sphinx, 1.3 or better. And apt
can't find it either... Sigh.
I guess I go out and see if synaptic can show me anything on its own
screen. This is a jessie based install. But with a pinned realtime
kernel a few versions lower than what I'm attempting to build. 4.4.4
