aramvo, morning!08:13
mvohey ara, good morning08:23
arahey mvo, upgrading question: O:-)08:39
mvoara: sure08:40
aramvo, yesterday, I upgraded a mini9 running UNE (i had just installed it, so very clean) to 10.10 (Unity) and it took 6 hours!08:40
arais that normal?08:40
arawell, a mini9 does not have a core i7, but still...08:41
mvo6h - woah08:41
mvothat is a *long* time08:41
mvoara: most of this time was dpkg running, I assume? not the download?08:42
arayes, and it wasn't downloading time, I promise :-)08:42
aramvo, :D08:42
aramvo, dpkg running08:42
mvoI have one atom machine that I can test today and debug08:42
mvoara: how much memory? 1gb I assume?08:42
mvossd ? or normal hdd?08:43
mvothanks :)08:43
mvothat should be enough info so that I can reproduce08:44
arammm, maybe ssd, let me double check08:44
aramvo, do you want me to file a bug so you can track progress?08:44
araagainst update-manager?08:44
mvoif ssd it would be even more disturbing, but my first guess would be that its hitting swap a lot08:44
jibelara, is it slow if you simply use dpkg ?08:45
jibelara, which type of fs ?08:45
mvogood morning jibel08:46
jibelgood morning mvo ! how are you ?08:47
arajibel, ext408:47
mvojibel: good, thanks! how are you? crazy amounts of sru? a bit more quiet? I think I got most of software-center ready now, I'm quite happy about that08:49
jibelmvo, pitti is busy on other things, so that's rather quiet :-)08:50
mvoara: perfect timming btw, I got a spare notebook hdd just yesterday for this kind of testing08:50
mvojibel: haha :)08:50
mvojibel: excellent, we should keep him busy08:50
aramvo, nice :)08:50
aramvo, it is an SSD08:55
jibelara, that's probably bug 57080509:00
ubot4Launchpad bug 570805 in dpkg (Ubuntu Lucid) (and 3 other projects) "[regression] dpkg's fsync causes massive regression in Ubuntu Server and Alternate installation times (affects: 18) (dups: 1) (heat: 154)" [High,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/57080509:00
jibelara, but this was fixed by changing to a global sync, so 6h is way too much.09:01
arajibel, yes, but I didn't update Lucid before upgrading09:02
aramvo, bug 64663809:02
ubot4Launchpad bug 646638 in update-manager (Ubuntu) "Upgrading from UNE 10.04 to 10.10 (Unity) took about 6 hours (affects: 1) (heat: 6)" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/64663809:02
jibelara, oh. what was the version of dpkg before the upgrade ?09:02
arajibel, might be09:02
arajibel, I don't know09:02
arajibel, but it is stocked 10.04.1, so we can see on the release notes09:03
arajibel, if it is previous that one, I will try again09:03
aratoday updating before09:03
jibelara, it was  dpkg
jibelara,  and the fix is in  dpkg
jibelara, are you able to install 10.04.1, upgrade dpkg to or 4.3 and upgrade to maverick ?09:05
arajibel, yes, I will do that today09:05
jibelara, that's weird that was installed with 10.04.1 because is on the iso (at least desktop-i386)09:11
arajibel, mvo: I am trying again, but now, I have the latest dpkg (I only updated that package) and it is still  very slow (it says 7 hours remaining...)11:48
arais there any other package I should update?11:49
jibelara, I don't think of any. Can you add the output of dmesg to your report ?11:51
arajibel, sure, one it finishes I will11:51
ara(in about 5 hours) :D11:51
jibelara, what's interesting is how the current kernel sees your drive and fs, so save the output before rebooting. You confirm that you use ext4 and not btrfs ?11:54
jibelara, so lets wait for 5 hours :)11:54
