Re: How long should "Updating mozilla chrome registry..." take?

I'm on an Athlon 2600+ 1Gig RAM SCSI drives, so I suppose it would qualify as a decent machine ;) I've let it run for an hour before I Ctrl-C'd it. But now even when I run 'apt-get remove mozilla' or any other apt command for that matter it always goes back to updating the chrome registry. I'm about to wipe the partition and try again if no one can suggest anything better :( I hope this isn't a sign of things to come...

I'm installing Debian from within RedHat as described in the installation docs. The installer seems to have frozen at the "Updating mozilla chrome registry..." step. It's already been a half hour or so at this step. How long should it take?

On a reasonably fast machine (Pentium class, 300MHz), not more than five or ten minutes. If you're not in a hurry and you're on a slow machine, you might give it another half hour or so, but if you've got a faster machine (PIII, 800MHz), I'd Ctrl-C it and try again. But you might want to wait and see what others suggest; I'm often an idiot and will likely lead you astray.
