Bug#700633: Why this eatmydata patch still not applied to debootstrap? My USB storage devices are slow
severity -1 normal
Why this bug ( https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=700633 ) still is not fixed?
I did some experiments and here are results: if I run debootstrap stage of d-i under eatmydata, then its time decreases from 755 s to 370 - 405 s. (I installed Debian
to USB storage device).
Please, fix this bug. Fix is simple, benefits for many users are big. (So I change severity.)
I think eatmydata mode should be enabled by default in debootstrap. Both inside of d-i and outside of it.
