Slow package database
what has always annoyed me is now ready to be asked on this list. :)
It appears like apt-get/aptitude/dpkg dealing with the list/database of
installed packages is terribly slow at times. I have roughly 1800 packages
installed and it sometimes takes 20-30 seconds to install a single
package. On a freshly installed system that's just a matter of seconds.
Since this is one of my two development workstations I uninstall and
install a lot of packages and dist-upgrade to unstable/experimental daily.
So the package database is in permanent flux. What might be the cause? Is
there some fragmentation effect? This is a common effect on a few Debian
systems here so I assume I'm not alone with it. Has anyone else observed
that? Is there a way to optimize it?
