after 7 hours:
At first I thought it was the classic errors such as bad media etc so i replaced the media and redownloaded the pro 1.4 and checked the md5sum, all perfect.Extracting from /mnt/temp/distro.rar
Extracting gentooxx.xbe OK
Extracting initrd.gz OK
Extracting linuxboot.cfg OK
Extracting rootfs 37%
Then i tried with different medias which has worked in the past for other apps. Same problem
Then i figurered it was my thompson drive which was messed up so i tweaked the pot(not really that hard as people make it out to be if you know how to measure ohms). After the tweak i had the same problem.
Then i ctrl+c the stardust and copied the file manually to /mnt/native and then cd /mnt/e and then unrar e /mnt/native and its still slow!!! But the copy from cd to the hdd went pretty fast(so nothing wrong with hdd speed).
Any idea what is causing the rootfs extraction to be this slow?
Think ive tried everything any tip or hint would be nice.
