    I reported a bug in bugzilla and hope, the issues are being solved in the near future. This weekend I might reinstall Fedora once again to give usefull logs to the maintainers.

    Logs would be useful. Try http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/22_RC2/ or whatever latest RC is available. Remember the release is frozen a while before the actual release to give time for the mirrors.

    Anaconda took almost 7 hours to install!

    I tried to install Fedora 22 Beta last weekend (could be an RC as well, the Workstation Netinstall from their site) and was caught by Anaconda taking almost 7 hours to install Fedora 22 on VirtualBox.

    I am still into decision process whether I really like to switch from Fedora 20 to Fedora 22 or Debian Jessie. So far I am still with Fedora 22 because I know the repositories, know the packages and overall am very happy with it. Sadly the Installer is slow. Slow doesn't mean that it's badly programmed. Slow as in slow performance.

    I know the installation process depends on many factors. Speed of CPU, Speed of Harddisk, Free Memory or Host System and so on. But I also tried a Debian Jessie Installation not long ago on the same System and their installer took less than 1 hour to completely install Debian from Netinstall. Both package sets are quite similar. XFCE, Libreoffice, Firefox and so on. I also retried installing Fedora using their nightly TC4 release (Netinstall), same issue. Almost 7 hours again.

    Specs: Lenovo E-320 (4gb ram / 320gb hd / E-450 APU) running Fedora 20. Internet is Kabeldeutschland with 100mbit (12.5mb/s).

    I'd really wish, the performance bottlenecks during installation using Anaconda will be tracked down and fixed in the upcoming versions of Fedora. I still belive that Python (which iirc is used by Anaconda) is the root cause of the huge and massive slowdown during installation process.

    I reported a bug in bugzilla and hope, the issues are being solved in the near future. This weekend I might reinstall Fedora once again to give usefull logs to the maintainers.

    Phoronix: Fedora 22 Marches Closer To Release

    Fedora 22 is scheduled to be released next week but for that to happen there's still a number of blocker bugs that need to be addressed. The second release candidate of Fedora 22 Final is now available for those wishing to stress this major update of the Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution...
