didn't retry to install anything) for me either [but thanks for the
pointer there was an x86_64 version available, could have sworn I
checked the other day and there was only i386]. It eats so much CPU (I
have an AMD64 3200 w/ 2GB ram) that it heats up the cpu pretty good.
Taking around half an hour to refresh at 100% cpu when I try to change
an installation source, or when I log in, just isn't worth it for me. I
would rather the updater only check for security updates if it takes it
that long that often to refresh. I did add a few sources, but that is
just not acceptable. Uninstalling zen-updater, zmd, rug allows me to
